Synodic month length 29.69 days

Length of current 1240 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 1241 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠176.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠200.1°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 05:13, this is 13 days after last perigee on 24 April 2100 at 02:13 in ♎ Libra.

3 days after its ascending node on 4 May 2100 at 01:19 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 May 2100 at 10:11 in ♍ Virgo.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 9 May 2100 at 08:54 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
