Synodic month length 29.36 days

Length of current 1007 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1008 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠298.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠298.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠322.9°. 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 perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 11 June 2081 at 17:00 in ♌ Leo. 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 27 June 2081 at 03:39 in ♓ Pisces.

1 day after its descending node on 13 June 2081 at 20:45 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 June 2081 at 15:47 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days after previous North standstill on 8 June 2081 at 04:25 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.340°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.324° in the next southern standstill on 21 June 2081 at 03:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 21 June 2081 at 07:32 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
