Length of current 941 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 23 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2076. It is longer than next lunation 942 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 21 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 48 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠9.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.4°. 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 perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 4 February 2076 at 07:52 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 February 2076 at 01:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 2 February 2076 at 15:14 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.547°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.589° in the next northern standstill on 15 February 2076 at 19:53 in ♋ Cancer.
