Length of current 1108 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 1109 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠3.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠19.1°. 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 after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 19 August 2089 at 09:33 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 September 2089 at 12:32 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 16 August 2089 at 02:34 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.382°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.297° in the next northern standstill on 30 August 2089 at 14:24 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 4 September 2089 at 15:58 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
