Length of current 1178 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 30 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2095. It is 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1179 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠9.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 4 April 2095 at 03:40 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 April 2095 at 22:45 in ♍ Virgo.
