Length of current 1071 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours shorter than next lunation 1072 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠129.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠129.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠157.5°. 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 after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 26 August 2086 at 02:04 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 September 2086 at 10:10 in ♎ Libra.

Moon in northern standstill

At 02:04 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.092°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-21.940° in its southern standstill point on 15 September 2086 at 19:03 in ♐ Sagittarius.
