Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠37.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠63.8°. 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 24 March 2067 at 19:49 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 April 2067 at 05:49 in ♒ Aquarius.

12 days after its descending node on 22 March 2067 at 03:17 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 5 April 2067 at 05:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 21 March 2067 at 15:43 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.428°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.296° in the next southern standstill on 4 April 2067 at 22:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 13 April 2067 at 19:23 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
