Synodic month length 29.52 days

Length of current 1242 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes longer than next lunation 1243 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 9 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠227.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠227.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠261°. 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 before perigee

13 days after point of apogee on 3 June 2100 at 17:09 in ♈ Aries. 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 19 June 2100 at 12:17 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 8 June 2100 at 18:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.177°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.185° in the next southern standstill on 21 June 2100 at 19:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 22 June 2100 at 01:11 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
