Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 487 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 488 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠176.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠199.2°. 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 6 June 2039 at 12:01 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 June 2039 at 15:56 in ♉ Taurus.
