Synodic month length 29.43 days

Length of current 510 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 17 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 511 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠32.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠32.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠56.2°. 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 apogee

6 days after point of perigee on 30 March 2041 at 02:37 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 April 2041 at 23:41 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 25 March 2041 at 14:14 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.252°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.319° in the next northern standstill on 7 April 2041 at 10:33 in ♋ Cancer.
