Synodic month length 29.79 days

Length of current 878 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2071. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes longer than next lunation 879 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠187.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠187.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠214.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 08:40, this is 14 days after last apogee on 31 December 2070 at 14:10 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 27 January 2071 at 21:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 357 535 km

This perigee Moon is 357 535 km (222 162 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 973 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 821 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

6 days after its descending node on 8 January 2071 at 19:49 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 January 2071 at 06:04 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 14 January 2071 at 05:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.487°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.432° in the next southern standstill on 27 January 2071 at 15:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.
