Synodic month length 29.54 days

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

Length of current synodic month is 20 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 43 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 19 March 2062 at 16:28 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 April 2062 at 14:06 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 18 March 2062 at 10:24 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.705°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.700° in the next southern standstill on 31 March 2062 at 23:35 in ♐ Sagittarius.
