The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 41 minutes. It is 2 hours and 30 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 before southern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 26 September 2070 at 13:29 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.394°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.377° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 October 2070 at 08:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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