Length of current 792 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 26 minutes. It is 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 793 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠125.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠125.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.8°. 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 apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 7 January 2064 at 03:30 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 January 2064 at 05:31 in ♓ Pisces.

New draconic month

At 17:11 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 15 January 2064 at 20:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.815°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.857° in the next northern standstill on 30 January 2064 at 10:58 in ♊ Gemini.
