Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 1196 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 18 minutes. It is 2 hours and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 1197 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠110.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠110.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠143.3°. 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 apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 6 September 2096 at 10:00 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 September 2096 at 03:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 10 September 2096 at 21:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.671°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.795° in the next southern standstill on 25 September 2096 at 05:26 in ♑ Capricorn.
