Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠310.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠332.3°. 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 before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 6 August 2091 at 07:42 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 August 2091 at 06:08 in ♎ Libra.
