Synodic month length 29.74 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 45 minutes. It is 2 hours and 15 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 5 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 2 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠211.5°

The true anomaly is ∠211.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠244.8°.

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 10 December 2069 at 12:50 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 18 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 31 December 2069 at 15:07 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 402 399 km

The Moon is 402 399 km (250 039 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 18 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 337 km (230 117 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after ascending node on 9 December 2069 at 16:16 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 23 December 2069 at 17:14 in ♈ Aries.

Moon at southern standstill

At 16:54 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-19.339°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠19.319° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 27 December 2069 at 01:12.

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.
