Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 491 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 46 minutes. It is 9 minutes longer than next lunation 492 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠294.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠294.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠321.1°. 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 apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 8 October 2039 at 10:06 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 October 2039 at 05:11 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 9 October 2039 at 20:04 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.247°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.344° in the next southern standstill on 23 October 2039 at 01:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
