Length of current 788 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter than next lunation 789 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 19 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 50 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠14.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠14.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠31.9°. 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 before perigee

11 days after point of apogee on 4 October 2063 at 01:08 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 October 2063 at 20:10 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 13 October 2063 at 04:27 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.062°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.978° in the next southern standstill on 25 October 2063 at 21:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.
