Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 711 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 45 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes longer than next lunation 712 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠196.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠196.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠222.5°. 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 perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 30 June 2057 at 05:32 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2057 at 07:01 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 2 July 2057 at 02:54 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.700°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.701° in the next southern standstill on 15 July 2057 at 13:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
