Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠231.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠231.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠265.3°. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 19 June 2082 at 21:53 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2082 at 20:11 in ♎ Libra.
