Synodic month length 29.29 days

Length of current 759 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2061. It is 7 minutes shorter than next lunation 760 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠358.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠13.9°. 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

3 days after point of apogee on 2 June 2061 at 04:48 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 June 2061 at 22:16 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 953 km

Moon is 400 953 km (249 141 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 371 km (222 681 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 29 May 2061 at 16:23 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 June 2061 at 01:57 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 4 June 2061 at 22:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.272°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.260° in the next northern standstill on 18 June 2061 at 03:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 17 June 2061 at 18:03 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
