Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 550 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 46 minutes. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter than next lunation 551 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠0.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠0.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠16°. 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 25 June 2044 at 09:26 in ♋ Cancer. 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 8 July 2044 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
