Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠335.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠335.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠352.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before perigee

11 days after point of apogee on 6 November 2074 at 10:36 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2074 at 07:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 8 November 2074 at 20:11 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.659°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.732° in the next southern standstill on 21 November 2074 at 20:06 in ♑ Capricorn.
