Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 735 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 736 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 27 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠84.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠84.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠119.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 2 June 2059 at 22:39 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 June 2059 at 01:27 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 391 827 km

Moon is 391 827 km (243 470 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 358 km (251 256 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 8 June 2059 at 12:58 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 June 2059 at 23:01 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon in northern standstill

At 17:24 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠26.629°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-26.615° in its southern standstill point on 26 June 2059 at 01:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
