Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 1043 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 41 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1044 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠128.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠128.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠157°. 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 21 May 2084 at 12:03 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 June 2084 at 20:10 in ♋ Cancer.
