Synodic month length 29.73 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 33 minutes. It is 3 hours and 11 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 14 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
