Length of current 1096 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes. It is 3 hours shorter than next lunation 1097 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

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

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠37.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠62.5°. 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

2 days after point of perigee on 10 September 2088 at 15:52 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 September 2088 at 00:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
