Lunation length same as the mean

Length of current synodic month is equal to the mean length of synodic month. It is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the 21st century shortest and 7 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the 21st century longest synodic month.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠46.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.5°. 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 perigee

13 days after point of apogee on 24 February 2075 at 02:31 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 10 March 2075 at 13:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 26 February 2075 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.916°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.019° in the next southern standstill on 11 March 2075 at 10:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
