Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠173.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠173.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠197.5°. 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 perigee

11 days after point of apogee on 15 February 2037 at 23:45 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 March 2037 at 19:48 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 25 February 2037 at 22:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.631°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.688° in the next southern standstill on 10 March 2037 at 14:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 2 March 2037 at 00:28 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
