Synodic month length 29.43 days

Length of current 998 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 999 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 25 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 44 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠29.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠29.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠51.5°. 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 before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 23 September 2080 at 20:47 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 9 October 2080 at 17:45 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 21 September 2080 at 02:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.695°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.682° in the next northern standstill on 5 October 2080 at 09:53 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 13 October 2080 at 02:44 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
