Length of current 761 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 29 minutes. It is 2 hours and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 762 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠31.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠53.7°. 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 11 August 2061 at 19:47 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 August 2061 at 20:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 11 August 2061 at 20:45 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.426°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.503° in the next southern standstill on 25 August 2061 at 17:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.
