Length of current 315 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 316 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠36.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠36.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠60.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 5 July 2025 at 02:29 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 July 2025 at 13:52 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 1 July 2025 at 03:46 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 July 2025 at 10:42 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 9 July 2025 at 06:03 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.423°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.474° in the next northern standstill on 22 July 2025 at 09:43 in ♊ Gemini.
