Synodic month length 29.74 days

Length of current 1224 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 1225 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 4 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠115.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠115.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠149°. 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 8 January 2099 at 18:21 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 15 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 January 2099 at 12:47 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 6 January 2099 at 00:46 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.354°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.389° in the next southern standstill on 18 January 2099 at 22:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 21 January 2099 at 09:07 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
