Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 1067 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2086. It is 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 1068 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠18.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.1°. 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 24 April 2086 at 22:37 in ♍ Virgo. 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 10 May 2086 at 18:33 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 2 May 2086 at 01:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.482°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.466° in the next northern standstill on 14 May 2086 at 20:32 in ♊ Gemini.
