Synodic month length 29.57 days

Length of current 483 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 484 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠51.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠51.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠83.5°. 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

5 days after point of perigee on 15 February 2039 at 17:30 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 March 2039 at 22:42 in ♉ Taurus.
