Synodic month length 29.54 days

Length of current 721 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 722 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠82.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠82.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠118.2°. 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 after perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 11 May 2058 at 17:49 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 May 2058 at 13:11 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 12 May 2058 at 02:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.271°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.300° in the next northern standstill on 25 May 2058 at 15:27 in ♋ Cancer.
