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 before apogee

8 days 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 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 January 2099 at 12:47 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 6 January 2099 at 00:46 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.354°. Next day 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 3 days

After 3 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.
