Length of current 1194 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1195 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠47.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠47.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.1°. 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 before perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 28 July 2096 at 13:17 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 August 2096 at 00:11 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 1 August 2096 at 13:13 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.382°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.461° in the next northern standstill on 14 August 2096 at 16:29 in ♋ Cancer.
