Length of current 1205 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 44 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2097. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 1206 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠355.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10°. 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 18:43, this is 14 days after last apogee on 24 June 2097 at 09:04 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 21 July 2097 at 14:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 357 840 km

This perigee Moon is 357 840 km (222 351 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 668 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 516 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in northern standstill

At 15:01 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.459°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.475° in its southern standstill point on 22 July 2097 at 05:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
