Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 870 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 16 minutes. It is 26 minutes longer than next lunation 871 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠350.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠350.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠5.3°. 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 apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 10:55, this is 14 days after last perigee on 11 May 2070 at 01:00 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 8 June 2070 at 10:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 12 May 2070 at 15:52 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.793°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.834° in the next southern standstill on 26 May 2070 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
