Synodic month length 29.59 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 7 minutes. It is 55 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 40 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠131.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠131.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠158.8°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 11 June 2005 at 06:11 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 June 2005 at 11:49 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 368 864 km

The Moon is 368 864 km (229 201 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 675 km (223 492 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 17 June 2005 at 03:59 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 June 2005 at 16:29 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before southern standstill

13 days since the previous standstill on 8 June 2005 at 07:36 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.224°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-28.214° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 June 2005 at 07:59 in ♑ Capricorn.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
