Synodic month length 29.32 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 46 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2007. It is 1 hour and 5 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠19.8°

The true anomaly is ∠19.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠38.7°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 12 June 2007 at 17:07 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 24 June 2007 at 14:25 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 369 600 km

The Moon is 369 600 km (229 659 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 540 km (251 370 mi).

Moon before descending node

6 days after ascending node on 8 June 2007 at 00:35 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 June 2007 at 19:32 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 2 June 2007 at 09:31 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.219°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠28.212° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 June 2007 at 08:31 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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