Synodic month length 29.55 days

Length of current 475 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours longer than next lunation 476 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠226°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠226°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠259.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before perigee

14 days after point of apogee on 29 May 2038 at 20:16 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 June 2038 at 15:26 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 5 June 2038 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.031°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.039° in the next southern standstill on 18 June 2038 at 05:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
