Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 87 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 14 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than next lunation 88 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 30 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 39 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠308.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠308.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 12:24, this is 11 days after last apogee on 10 January 2007 at 16:26 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 16 January 2007 at 22:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.448°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.501° in the next northern standstill on 29 January 2007 at 18:19 in ♊ Gemini.
