Synodic month length 29.81 days

Length of current 334 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 32 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2027. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 335 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠184.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠184.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠210.4°. 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 after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 7 January 2027 at 08:10 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 January 2027 at 21:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 5 January 2027 at 20:46 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.636°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.682° in the next northern standstill on 19 January 2027 at 23:16 in ♊ Gemini.
