Length of current 1095 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 37 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than next lunation 1096 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠18.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.4°. 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 08:21, this is 15 days after last apogee on 29 July 2088 at 13:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.
