Synodic month length 29.43 days

Length of current 1035 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 16 minutes. It is 24 minutes longer than next lunation 1036 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠299.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠299.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠325°. 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

2 days after point of apogee on 1 October 2083 at 17:48 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 October 2083 at 13:59 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 2 October 2083 at 11:05 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.664°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.557° in the next southern standstill on 15 October 2083 at 18:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
