The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 58 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2099. It is 17 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Moon before southern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 2 February 2099 at 10:56 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.479°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.548° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 February 2099 at 03:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
