Length of current 1056 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 1057 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠94.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠94.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠128.7°. 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 apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 10 June 2085 at 19:37 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 June 2085 at 15:24 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2085 at 03:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.119°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.128° in the next northern standstill on 21 June 2085 at 02:38 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 22 June 2085 at 03:18 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
