Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 1218 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2098. It is 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 1219 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠339.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.1°. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 15 July 2098 at 11:43 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 July 2098 at 15:50 in ♌ Leo.

10 days after its descending node on 6 July 2098 at 02:56 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 July 2098 at 16:26 in ♈ Aries.
