Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠324.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠343.2°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 8 April 2061 at 18:12 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 April 2061 at 03:02 in ♉ Taurus.
