Length of current 562 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 24 minutes. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 563 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠328°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠328°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠345.4°. 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 after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 17 June 2045 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 July 2045 at 18:04 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 15 June 2045 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.696°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.699° in the next southern standstill on 28 June 2045 at 04:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
