Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 743 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 744 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠323.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠323.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠342.5°. 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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 20 February 2060 at 10:06 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 March 2060 at 16:59 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 12 February 2060 at 09:28 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.319°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.445° in the next southern standstill on 27 February 2060 at 00:51 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 2 March 2060 at 16:11 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
