Synodic month length 29.59 days

Length of current 809 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than next lunation 810 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠206.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠206.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠235.9°. 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 16 June 2065 at 20:01 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 June 2065 at 22:35 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 7 June 2065 at 16:41 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 June 2065 at 10:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 17 June 2065 at 22:40 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.172°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.180° in the next northern standstill on 1 July 2065 at 23:11 in ♊ Gemini.
