Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 828 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 59 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2067. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 829 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 24 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠346.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠346.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠2.4°. 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

7 days after point of apogee on 1 January 2067 at 14:49 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 January 2067 at 07:56 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 380 114 km

Moon is 380 114 km (236 192 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 756 km (221 678 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 30 December 2066 at 17:42 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 January 2067 at 18:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 29 December 2066 at 18:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.938°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.918° in the next southern standstill on 13 January 2067 at 00:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 15 January 2067 at 11:17 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
