The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 5 July 2032 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.659°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.579° at the point of next southern standstill on 20 July 2032 at 03:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 7 July 2032 at 14:41 in ♋ Cancer 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.
