Length of current 415 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 27 minutes. It is 2 hours and 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 416 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 43 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 20 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠108.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠108.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠140.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of perigee on 12 August 2033 at 21:22 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 August 2033 at 15:27 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 19 August 2033 at 17:46 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.456°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.364° in the next southern standstill on 3 September 2033 at 09:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 24 August 2033 at 21:40 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
