At 17:21 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 488 of Meeus index or 1441 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.61 days

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠199.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠199.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠226.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 19 June 2039 at 15:56 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2039 at 20:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 404 348 km

Moon is 404 348 km (251 250 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 517 km (223 394 mi).

Moon before northern standstill

13 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2039 at 11:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.703°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.701° in the next northern standstill on 22 June 2039 at 16:02 in ♋ Cancer.
