Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 895 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes longer than next lunation 896 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠285°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠285°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠313.1°. 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 before perigee

5 days after point of apogee on 7 June 2072 at 12:42 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 June 2072 at 10:24 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 388 712 km

Moon is 388 712 km (241 534 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 625 km (227 189 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 8 June 2072 at 10:43 in ♓ Pisces, 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 21 June 2072 at 16:43 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 2 June 2072 at 16:38 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.669°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.692° in the next northern standstill on 17 June 2072 at 00:01 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 16 June 2072 at 09:57 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
