Synodic month length 29.73 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 33 minutes. It is 3 hours and 11 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 14 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠210.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠210.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠242.4°.

Moon before perigee

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 1 March 2027 at 09:41 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.684°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.611° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 March 2027 at 14:15 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 8 March 2027 at 09:29 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
