Synodic month length 29.53 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes. It is 2 hours and 52 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 8 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 1 minute longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Moon before southern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 3 April 2036 at 13:10 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.439°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.540° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 April 2036 at 20:29 in ♑ Capricorn.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
