Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 859 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 860 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 24 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠40.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠66.4°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 15:08, this is 15 days after last apogee on 28 June 2069 at 10:15 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 368 840 km

This perigee Moon is 368 840 km (229 187 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2069. It is 6 332 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 516 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 03:06 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 26 July 2069 at 17:40 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 2 July 2069 at 18:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.920°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.867° in the next northern standstill on 15 July 2069 at 22:08 in ♊ Gemini.
