Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 420 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 15 minutes. It is 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than next lunation 421 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 31 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 32 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠252°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠252°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠289°. 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

10 days after point of perigee on 1 January 2034 at 00:06 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 January 2034 at 00:22 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days after previous North standstill on 3 January 2034 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.468°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.413° in the next southern standstill on 17 January 2034 at 23:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 20 January 2034 at 10:02 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
