Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 46 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠145.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠145.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠170.2°. 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 perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 17 July 2076 at 05:58 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 August 2076 at 00:12 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 15 July 2076 at 12:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.329°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.331° in the next northern standstill on 28 July 2076 at 15:14 in ♋ Cancer.
