Synodic month length 29.77 days

Length of current 863 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 34 minutes. It is 26 minutes shorter than next lunation 864 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠161.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠161.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠185.4°. 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 apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 30 October 2069 at 09:15 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 November 2069 at 07:36 in ♏ Scorpio.

New draconic month

At 11:24 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 2 November 2069 at 01:44 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.271°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.293° in the next southern standstill on 16 November 2069 at 09:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
