Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠12.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠12.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠29.7°. 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

10 days after point of apogee on 14 October 2081 at 14:03 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 October 2081 at 07:55 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 22 October 2081 at 20:04 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.369°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.291° in the next southern standstill on 4 November 2081 at 12:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.
