Length of current 1040 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 11 minutes. It is 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 1041 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠33.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠33.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠58.7°. 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

12 days after point of apogee on 15 February 2084 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 March 2084 at 16:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 15 February 2084 at 18:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.289°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.203° in the next southern standstill on 29 February 2084 at 15:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
