Length of current 769 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 4 minutes. It is 2 hours and 58 minutes longer than next lunation 770 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠268.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠268.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠301.6°. 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

7 days after point of apogee on 4 March 2062 at 17:42 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 March 2062 at 16:28 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 4 March 2062 at 15:29 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.680°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.705° in the next northern standstill on 18 March 2062 at 10:24 in ♋ Cancer.
