Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 400 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes shorter than next lunation 401 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠73.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠73.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠108.4°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 29 May 2032 at 02:49 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 June 2032 at 16:28 in ♌ Leo.
