At 22:25 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 389 of Meeus index or 1342 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 16 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2031. It is 24 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 31 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 31 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠165.9°

The true anomaly is ∠165.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠188.7°.

Moon before perigee

13 days after point of perigee on 6 June 2031 at 12:11 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 21 June 2031 at 11:25 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 405 240 km

The Moon is 405 240 km (251 804 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 452 km (252 558 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 17 June 2031 at 09:18 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 1 July 2031 at 18:35 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 19 June 2031 at 02:22 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.105°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.077° at the point of next southern standstill on 3 July 2031 at 05:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

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.
