Synodic month length 29.44 days

Length of current 830 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2067. It is 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 831 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠18.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.6°. 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

11 days after point of apogee on 25 February 2067 at 01:39 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 March 2067 at 00:40 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 23 February 2067 at 01:40 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 March 2067 at 05:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon in southern standstill

At 17:24 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.547°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.428° in its northern standstill point on 21 March 2067 at 15:43 in ♊ Gemini.
