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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 03:43, this is 12 days after last apogee on 23 March 2083 at 01:37 in ♉ Taurus.
