Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 16 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠38.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠38.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠64.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 21:38, this is 15 days after last apogee on 24 June 2007 at 14:25 in ♎ Libra.
