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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 17:09, this is 12 days after last perigee on 22 May 2100 at 11:04 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 19 June 2100 at 12:17 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 25 May 2100 at 09:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.230°. Next 5 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.
