Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 9 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠342.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠342.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠358.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 18 January 2041 at 23:16 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 February 2041 at 07:46 in ♒ Aquarius.
