Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠46.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠75°. 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 after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 30 August 2035 at 02:28 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 September 2035 at 23:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 28 August 2035 at 17:25 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.744°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.755° in the next southern standstill on 11 September 2035 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 17 September 2035 at 14:23 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
