Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 14:32, this is 15 days after last apogee on 11 July 2079 at 01:15 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 7 August 2079 at 14:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 361 454 km

This perigee Moon is 361 454 km (224 597 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 054 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 902 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

4 days after its ascending node on 21 July 2079 at 12:53 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 August 2079 at 04:34 in ♎ Libra.

Moon in northern standstill

At 06:44 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.003°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.063° in its southern standstill point on 8 August 2079 at 23:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 28 July 2079 at 08:33 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
