Length of current 344 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 48 minutes. It is 3 hours shorter than next lunation 345 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠61.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠61.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠96°. 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 after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 25 October 2027 at 05:36 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 November 2027 at 11:37 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 20 October 2027 at 01:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.793°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.700° in the next southern standstill on 2 November 2027 at 01:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.
