Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠282.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠282.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠312.2°. 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

2 days after point of perigee on 8 September 2092 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 September 2092 at 14:18 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon in southern standstill

At 11:11 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-20.164°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠20.251° in its northern standstill point on 24 September 2092 at 12:04 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
