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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 25 May 2070 at 10:55 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 June 2070 at 10:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 371 089 km

Moon is 371 089 km (230 584 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 376 km (222 063 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 days after its ascending node on 21 May 2070 at 18:54 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 June 2070 at 03:55 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 26 May 2070 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.834°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.846° in the next northern standstill on 9 June 2070 at 03:14 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 8 June 2070 at 18:24 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
