Synodic month length 29.81 days

Length of current 557 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 26 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2045. It is 2 hours and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 558 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠182.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠182.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠207.6°. 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 before apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 1 February 2045 at 08:43 in ♌ Leo. 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 14 February 2045 at 02:57 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 29 January 2045 at 16:53 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.156°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.184° in the next southern standstill on 11 February 2045 at 15:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
