Length of current 1041 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 48 minutes. It is 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 1042 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠58.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠58.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠92.7°. 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

11 days after point of apogee on 14 March 2084 at 19:06 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 March 2084 at 14:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 14 March 2084 at 02:47 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.104°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.978° in the next southern standstill on 27 March 2084 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
