Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 1167 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 1168 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠74.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠74.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠109.9°. 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

9 days after point of apogee on 21 May 2094 at 19:13 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 June 2094 at 22:20 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 18 May 2094 at 05:10 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.256°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.296° in the next southern standstill on 1 June 2094 at 08:45 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 13 June 2094 at 00:03 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
