Length of current 1195 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 10 minutes. It is 3 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 1196 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠76.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠110.9°. 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 apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 6 September 2096 at 10:00 in ♉ Taurus. 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 22 September 2096 at 03:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 10 September 2096 at 21:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.671°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.795° in the next southern standstill on 25 September 2096 at 05:26 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 16 September 2096 at 15:10 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
