Length of current 508 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 56 minutes. It is 6 minutes longer than next lunation 509 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠358.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠14°. 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 before perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 14 February 2041 at 23:03 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 March 2041 at 19:56 in ♒ Aquarius.
