Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 1089 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes longer than next lunation 1090 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠241.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠241.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠278.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 15 February 2088 at 13:47 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 February 2088 at 14:18 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 16 February 2088 at 15:48 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.751°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.628° in the next northern standstill on 1 March 2088 at 05:13 in ♊ Gemini.
