Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 1065 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 37 minutes. It is 48 minutes longer than next lunation 1066 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠347°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠347°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠2.3°. 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 apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 10:54, this is 14 days after last perigee on 14 February 2086 at 16:44 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 15 March 2086 at 04:46 in ♓ Pisces.
