Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠47.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠47.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.1°. 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

5 days after point of perigee on 12 August 2096 at 00:11 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 August 2096 at 08:09 in ♏ Scorpio.
