Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 686 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes longer than next lunation 687 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠288.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠288.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠315.9°. 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

10 days after point of perigee on 30 June 2055 at 11:09 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 July 2055 at 07:49 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 8 July 2055 at 11:08 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.424°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.410° in the next northern standstill on 22 July 2055 at 22:16 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 24 July 2055 at 09:48 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
