At 17:44 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1008 of Meeus index or 1961 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.32 days

29 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes is the length of new lunation 1008. It is 2 minutes longer than next lunation 1009 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠322.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠322.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠341.4°. 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

9 days after point of apogee on 27 June 2081 at 03:39 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 July 2081 at 01:02 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 372 416 km

Moon is 372 416 km (231 409 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 443 km (225 833 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 27 June 2081 at 15:47 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 July 2081 at 22:38 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 5 July 2081 at 12:53 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.356°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.389° in the next southern standstill on 18 July 2081 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
