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 perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 23 March 2083 at 01:37 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 April 2083 at 03:43 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 25 March 2083 at 12:42 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.306°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.208° in the next southern standstill on 7 April 2083 at 11:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
