Length of current 763 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 4 minutes. It is 2 hours and 54 minutes shorter than next lunation 764 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 20 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 43 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠84.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠84.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠120.1°. 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 20 September 2061 at 15:48 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 2 October 2061 at 13:00 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 22 September 2061 at 01:20 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.618°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.627° in the next northern standstill on 5 October 2061 at 08:08 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 13 October 2061 at 10:41 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
