Synodic month length 29.65 days

29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes is the length of new lunation 652. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 653 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠104.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠104.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠138.2°. 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 before apogee

10 days after point of perigee on 13 September 2052 at 06:22 in ♉ Taurus. 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 28 September 2052 at 19:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
