Synodic month length 29.34 days

29 days, 8 hours and 16 minutes is the length of new lunation 453. It is 1 hour and 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 454 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠9.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.8°. 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 18 September 2036 at 12:38 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 September 2036 at 13:16 in ♒ Aquarius.
