Synodic month length 29.76 days

Length of current 876 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 877 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠134.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠134.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠163.2°. 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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 7 November 2070 at 02:03 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2070 at 07:55 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 6 November 2070 at 16:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.443°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.488° in the next northern standstill on 20 November 2070 at 04:59 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 18 November 2070 at 05:40 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
