Length of current 915 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 916 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠43.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠43.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠72.6°. 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

12 days after point of apogee on 6 January 2074 at 17:28 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 January 2074 at 13:42 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days after previous North standstill on 12 January 2074 at 06:32 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.258°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.239° in the next southern standstill on 25 January 2074 at 06:55 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 27 January 2074 at 06:37 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
