Synodic month length 29.68 days

Length of current 1029 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 13 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2083. It is 9 minutes longer than next lunation 1030 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠126.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠126.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.3°. 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

15 days after point of perigee on 7 March 2083 at 02:14 in ♎ Libra. 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 23 March 2083 at 01:37 in ♉ Taurus.

7 days after its ascending node on 15 March 2083 at 05:07 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 March 2083 at 18:06 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 11 March 2083 at 05:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.406°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.306° in the next northern standstill on 25 March 2083 at 12:42 in ♊ Gemini.
