Length of current 1184 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 38 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1185 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠168.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠168.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠192.1°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 21:48, this is 13 days after last perigee on 13 October 2095 at 09:25 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days after previous North standstill on 18 October 2095 at 21:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.525°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.619° in the next southern standstill on 2 November 2095 at 15:39 in ♑ Capricorn.
