Length of current 1124 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 41 minutes. It is 2 hours and 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 1125 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠39°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠39°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠65.8°. 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

13 days after point of apogee on 30 November 2090 at 20:42 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 December 2090 at 06:21 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 8 December 2090 at 10:26 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.615°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.635° in the next southern standstill on 21 December 2090 at 09:02 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 21 December 2090 at 01:29 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
