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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:57, this is 15 days after last apogee on 21 June 2070 at 14:15 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 July 2070 at 01:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 359 714 km

This perigee Moon is 359 714 km (223 516 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 794 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 642 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 2 July 2070 at 07:45 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 July 2070 at 23:10 in ♎ Libra.

Moon in northern standstill

At 14:51 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.816°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.774° in its southern standstill point on 20 July 2070 at 08:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 8 July 2070 at 01:14 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
