Synodic month length 29.56 days

Length of current 930 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 31 minutes. It is 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 931 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠76.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠113.2°. 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 after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 23 March 2075 at 23:11 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 April 2075 at 22:38 in ♏ Scorpio.

3 days after its ascending node on 26 March 2075 at 01:58 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 April 2075 at 04:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 25 March 2075 at 08:07 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.138°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.269° in the next southern standstill on 7 April 2075 at 15:33 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 1 April 2075 at 08:45 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
