The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 4 minutes. It is 2 hours and 54 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

2 days since the previous standstill on 5 October 2061 at 08:08 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.627°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.607° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 October 2061 at 09:07 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 13 October 2061 at 10:41 in ♎ Libra 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.
