Synodic month length 29.36 days

Length of current 747 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 748 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠31.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠54.1°. 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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 8 June 2060 at 19:26 in ♎ Libra. 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 24 June 2060 at 12:41 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 402 662 km

Moon is 402 662 km (250 203 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 989 km (228 036 mi).

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 31 May 2060 at 15:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.668°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.634° in the next southern standstill on 15 June 2060 at 02:38 in ♑ Capricorn.
