Length of current 927 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 17 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 928 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠7.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠24.6°. 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 30 December 2074 at 16:12 in ♊ Gemini. 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 15 January 2075 at 07:21 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 2 January 2075 at 09:48 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.829°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.820° in the next southern standstill on 15 January 2075 at 19:15 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 16 January 2075 at 18:37 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
