Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠61.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠61.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠96°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 19 November 2027 at 00:10 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 December 2027 at 08:42 in ♒ Aquarius.
