Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 871 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2070. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 872 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠5.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠5.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠21.1°. 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 after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 8 June 2070 at 10:48 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 June 2070 at 14:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 369 870 km

Moon is 369 870 km (229 827 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 125 km (252 354 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 5 June 2070 at 03:55 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 June 2070 at 21:35 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 9 June 2070 at 03:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.846°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.860° in the next southern standstill on 23 June 2070 at 00:15 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 23 June 2070 at 16:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
