Hunter Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2077 after 12 days on 2 October 2077 at 01:20.

Synodic month length 29.72 days

Length of current 961 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 14 minutes. It is 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 962 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠171°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠171°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠194.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 18 September 2077 at 06:17 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 October 2077 at 22:59 in ♈ Aries.

11 days after its ascending node on 8 September 2077 at 05:17 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 September 2077 at 17:43 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 11 September 2077 at 00:42 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.130°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.269° in the next southern standstill on 25 September 2077 at 19:33 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 2 October 2077 at 01:20 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
