Synodic month length 29.78 days

Length of current 641 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 38 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2051. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer than next lunation 642 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠187.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠187.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠214.3°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 17 November 2051 at 10:55 in ♉ Taurus. 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 29 November 2051 at 23:42 in ♎ Libra.
