Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 1116 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 24 minutes. It is 3 hours and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 1117 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠214.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠214.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠246°. 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 perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 27 March 2090 at 18:35 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 April 2090 at 12:39 in ♍ Virgo.

7 days after its descending node on 30 March 2090 at 05:59 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 April 2090 at 16:39 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon in northern standstill

At 10:07 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.167°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.213° in its southern standstill point on 19 April 2090 at 02:47 in ♑ Capricorn.
