Synodic month length 0 days

days, 1 hour and 1 minute is the length of new lunation -953. It is longer than next lunation -953 length.

Lunation length same as the mean

Length of current synodic month is equal to the mean length of synodic month. It is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the 21st century shortest and 7 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the 21st century longest synodic month.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠0°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠0°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠0°. 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°).
