29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes is the length of new lunation 134. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 135 length.

Lunation length same as the mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠39.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠39.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠67°. 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 3 November 2010 at 17:22 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 November 2010 at 11:47 in ♓ Pisces.
