Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 817 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 818 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠35.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠35.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠61.6°. 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

9 days after point of apogee on 4 February 2066 at 09:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 February 2066 at 01:15 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 5 February 2066 at 06:59 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.448°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.369° in the next southern standstill on 18 February 2066 at 23:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 24 February 2066 at 08:50 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
