Synodic month length 29.34 days

Length of current 858 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 8 minutes. It is 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 859 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 36 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 33 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠21°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠21°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠40.5°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 13:22, this is 15 days after last apogee on 31 May 2069 at 17:30 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 28 June 2069 at 10:15 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 364 199 km

This perigee Moon is 364 199 km (226 303 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 691 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 157 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 5 June 2069 at 10:11 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.943°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.940° in the next northern standstill on 18 June 2069 at 12:47 in ♊ Gemini.
