Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 399 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour shorter than next lunation 400 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠44.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠44.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠73.2°. 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 apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 7 April 2032 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 April 2032 at 03:02 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 14 April 2032 at 13:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.650°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.640° in the next southern standstill on 28 April 2032 at 22:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
