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 before apogee

10 days 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 28 June 2079 at 08:30 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 369 398 km

The Moon is 369 398 km (229 533 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 090 km (222 507 mi).

Moon in ascending node

New draconic month

At 10:51 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 15 June 2079 at 11:49 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.928°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.935° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 June 2079 at 21:27 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 29 June 2079 at 01:31 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
