Synodic month length 29.6 days

Length of current 1103 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 22 minutes. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes longer than next lunation 1104 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠244.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠244.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠280.3°. 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 before apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 23 March 2089 at 00:07 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 April 2089 at 22:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
