Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 821 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 37 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2066. It is 18 minutes longer than next lunation 822 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠160.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠160.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠183.2°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 10:06, this is 13 days after last apogee on 26 May 2066 at 06:49 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 22 June 2066 at 10:28 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 357 249 km

This perigee Moon is 357 249 km (221 984 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2066. It is 5 259 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 824 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 27 May 2066 at 04:17 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 June 2066 at 12:08 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon in southern standstill

At 04:59 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-24.723°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠24.724° in its northern standstill point on 21 June 2066 at 17:22 in ♊ Gemini.
