Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 1142 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 39 minutes. It is 46 minutes longer than next lunation 1143 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠167.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 21 May 2092 at 11:11 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 June 2092 at 01:49 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 23 May 2092 at 22:16 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.010°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.088° in the next northern standstill on 7 June 2092 at 05:48 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 5 June 2092 at 05:17 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
