Synodic month length 29.56 days

Length of current 415 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 27 minutes. It is 2 hours and 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 416 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 43 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 20 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠108.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠108.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠140.6°. 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 apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 31 July 2033 at 23:13 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 August 2033 at 21:22 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 23 July 2033 at 11:24 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.624°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.529° in the next southern standstill on 7 August 2033 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn.
