Synodic month length 29.42 days

Length of current 913 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 914 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 45 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 24 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠6.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠6.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠22.5°. 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 perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 30 October 2073 at 10:23 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 November 2073 at 10:04 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 3 November 2073 at 23:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.020°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.145° in the next northern standstill on 18 November 2073 at 15:10 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 14 November 2073 at 19:55 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
