Synodic month length 29.29 days

Length of current 983 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 984 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 42 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 27 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠12°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠12°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠28.8°. 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

6 days after point of perigee on 28 June 2079 at 08:30 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 July 2079 at 01:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 385 602 km

Moon is 385 602 km (239 602 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 829 km (252 170 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 24 June 2079 at 10:51 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 July 2079 at 02:33 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 28 June 2079 at 21:27 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.935°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.936° in the next southern standstill on 12 July 2079 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
