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 apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 27 June 2081 at 03:39 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 July 2081 at 01:02 in ♌ Leo.

1 day after its ascending node on 27 June 2081 at 15:47 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 July 2081 at 22:38 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 21 June 2081 at 03:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.324°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.356° in the next northern standstill on 5 July 2081 at 12:53 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 6 July 2081 at 17:44 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
