Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 16 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠345.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠345.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠0.7°. 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 before perigee

12 days after point of apogee on 14 November 2065 at 06:34 in ♊ Gemini. 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 27 November 2065 at 20:39 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 15 November 2065 at 11:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.499°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.483° in the next southern standstill on 28 November 2065 at 19:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.
