Synodic month length 29.6 days

Length of current 372 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 373 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠67.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠67.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠104.1°. 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

3 days after point of perigee on 22 February 2030 at 10:01 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 March 2030 at 02:23 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon in southern standstill

At 22:24 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.278°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.130° in its northern standstill point on 12 March 2030 at 01:51 in ♊ Gemini.
