Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠197.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠197.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠225.1°. 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 its descending node on 12 March 2037 at 19:15 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 March 2037 at 01:19 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

13 days after previous South standstill on 10 March 2037 at 14:37 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.688°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.814° in the next northern standstill on 25 March 2037 at 05:57 in ♋ Cancer.
