Length of current 1135 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 13 minutes. It is 59 minutes shorter than next lunation 1136 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠349.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠349.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠4.7°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 09:20, this is 12 days after last apogee on 30 September 2091 at 16:41 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 5 October 2091 at 08:31 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.007°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.095° in the next southern standstill on 17 October 2091 at 23:45 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 27 October 2091 at 09:18 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
