Synodic month length 29.61 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 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 1 hour and 49 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠199.2°

The true anomaly is ∠199.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠226.3°.

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 19 June 2039 at 15:56 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 July 2039 at 20:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 402 447 km

The Moon is 402 447 km (250 069 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 517 km (223 394 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 21 June 2039 at 00:51 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 4 July 2039 at 14:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 16:02 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠24.701°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-24.696° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 5 July 2039 at 22:01.

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.
