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 before perigee

8 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 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 24 June 2060 at 12:41 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 378 394 km

Moon is 378 394 km (235 123 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 989 km (228 036 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 10 June 2060 at 08:48 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 June 2060 at 21:23 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 15 June 2060 at 02:38 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.634°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.624° in the next northern standstill on 28 June 2060 at 00:46 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 28 June 2060 at 02:58 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
