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

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 before apogee

11 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 November 2073 at 10:04 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 3 November 2073 at 23:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.020°. Next 8 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 4 days

After 4 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.
