Synodic month length 29.78 days

Length of current 1113 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 37 minutes. It is 35 minutes shorter than next lunation 1114 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠135.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠135.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠163.9°. 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

4 days after point of perigee on 17 January 2090 at 04:55 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 February 2090 at 09:55 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days after previous North standstill on 14 January 2090 at 07:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.390°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.339° in the next southern standstill on 27 January 2090 at 04:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 30 January 2090 at 14:34 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
