Length of current 1238 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 34 minutes. It is 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 1239 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠119.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠119.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠151.4°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:17, this is 11 days after last apogee on 14 February 2100 at 06:46 in ♈ Aries.
