Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 1241 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 38 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1242 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠200.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠200.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠227.5°. 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 before apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 22 May 2100 at 11:04 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 June 2100 at 17:09 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 25 May 2100 at 09:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.230°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.177° in the next northern standstill on 8 June 2100 at 18:51 in ♊ Gemini.
