Synodic month length 29.34 days

Length of current 997 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 11 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 998 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠12°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠12°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠29.1°. 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

7 days after point of apogee on 27 August 2080 at 06:54 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 September 2080 at 22:03 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 24 August 2080 at 19:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.609°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.667° in the next northern standstill on 8 September 2080 at 04:04 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 13 September 2080 at 16:25 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
