Synodic month length 29.72 days

Length of current 739 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2059. It is 44 minutes longer than next lunation 740 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠197.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠197.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠225.8°. 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 before apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 19 October 2059 at 23:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 November 2059 at 04:40 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 401 007 km

Moon is 401 007 km (249 174 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 658 km (252 064 mi).

Moon after ascending node

7 days after its ascending node on 22 October 2059 at 10:13 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 November 2059 at 17:51 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 26 October 2059 at 00:58 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.221°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.235° in the next southern standstill on 9 November 2059 at 16:49 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 5 November 2059 at 09:11 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
