Length of current 554 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 21 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 555 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 26 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠90.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠90.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠126.5°. 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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 27 October 2044 at 11:18 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 November 2044 at 06:14 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 25 October 2044 at 15:51 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.259°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.171° in the next northern standstill on 8 November 2044 at 11:13 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 19 November 2044 at 14:58 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
