Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠7.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠24.6°. 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 apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 27 February 2094 at 15:03 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 March 2094 at 04:25 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 25 February 2094 at 05:34 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.582°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.707° in the next southern standstill on 11 March 2094 at 14:07 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 16 March 2094 at 15:44 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
