Synodic month length 29.55 days

Length of current 1159 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 17 minutes. It is 53 minutes longer than next lunation 1160 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠247.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠247.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠284.3°. 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

11 days after point of perigee on 1 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 11 October 2093 at 17:32 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.080°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.213° in the next southern standstill on 25 October 2093 at 15:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
