Synodic month length 29.7 days

Length of current 582 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 42 minutes. It is 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 583 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠96.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠96.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠133°. 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

4 days after point of perigee on 13 February 2047 at 00:46 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 March 2047 at 00:38 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 6 February 2047 at 02:09 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.040°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.990° in the next southern standstill on 18 February 2047 at 21:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
