Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 51 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 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 3 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 16 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠38.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠38.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠64.2°.

Moon after perigee

3 days 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 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 24 June 2007 at 14:25 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 378 134 km

The Moon is 378 134 km (234 962 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 540 km (251 370 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 8 June 2007 at 00:35 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 June 2007 at 19:32 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 15 June 2007 at 08:31 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.212°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.215° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 June 2007 at 15:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 30 June 2007 at 13:49 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
