Synodic month length 29.28 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2079. It is 12 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 5 hours and 54 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 15 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠356.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠356.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠12°.

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 13 June 2079 at 18:54 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 28 June 2079 at 08:30 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 404 287 km

The Moon is 404 287 km (251 212 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 090 km (222 507 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after descending node on 10 June 2079 at 00:43 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 June 2079 at 10:51 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 11:49 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-27.928°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠27.935° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 28 June 2079 at 21:27.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

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