Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 872 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 37 minutes. It is 2 hours shorter than next lunation 873 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠21.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠21.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠40.1°. 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 before apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 6 July 2070 at 18:57 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 July 2070 at 01:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 394 663 km

Moon is 394 663 km (245 232 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 342 km (251 868 mi).

At 23:10 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before southern standstill

7 days after previous North standstill on 6 July 2070 at 14:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.816°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.774° in the next southern standstill on 20 July 2070 at 08:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
