Synodic month length 29.39 days

Length of current 463 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 464 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠292.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠292.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠318.7°. 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

13 days after point of perigee on 18 June 2037 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo. 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 3 July 2037 at 19:50 in ♓ Pisces.

3 days after its descending node on 29 June 2037 at 10:01 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 July 2037 at 15:35 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 28 June 2037 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.369°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.362° in the next northern standstill on 12 July 2037 at 10:57 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 13 July 2037 at 02:32 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
