Synodic month length 29.33 days

Length of current 426 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 427 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠25.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠45.9°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 00:19, this is 12 days after last perigee on 14 June 2034 at 21:42 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 12 July 2034 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 16 June 2034 at 18:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.417°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.423° in the next southern standstill on 30 June 2034 at 23:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
