Synodic month length 29.32 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 4 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠323.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠323.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠341.5°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 6 June 2080 at 12:37 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 18 June 2080 at 21:12 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 388 179 km

The Moon is 388 179 km (241 203 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 167 km (223 176 mi).

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 4 June 2080 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.386°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.379° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 June 2080 at 01:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 17 June 2080 at 18:40 in ♊ Gemini 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.
