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

11 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 February 2045 at 02:57 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 3 February 2045 at 02:18 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 February 2045 at 06:00 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 11 February 2045 at 15:40 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.184°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.188° in the next northern standstill on 26 February 2045 at 01:04 in ♊ Gemini.
