Synodic month length 29.59 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 5 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

Moon before southern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 2 November 2023 at 05:12 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.288°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.238° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 November 2023 at 14:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
