Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠210.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠242.4°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 3 February 2027 at 13:31 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 February 2027 at 07:30 in ♌ Leo.

4 days after previous South standstill on 2 February 2027 at 02:38 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.706°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.710° in the next northern standstill on 16 February 2027 at 07:59 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
