Synodic month length 29.29 days

Length of current 883 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 4 minutes. It is 28 minutes longer than next lunation 884 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 29 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠334°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠334°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠350.4°. 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 after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 31 May 2071 at 00:58 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 June 2071 at 11:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
