Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 1069 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 50 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 1070 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠62.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠62.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠95.5°. 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 04:43, this is 12 days after last apogee on 19 June 2086 at 09:56 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 17 July 2086 at 04:25 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 25 June 2086 at 07:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 July 2086 at 05:01 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before northern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 25 June 2086 at 15:51 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.460°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.447° in the next northern standstill on 8 July 2086 at 14:01 in ♊ Gemini.
