Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠54.6°. 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 is reaching point of perigee on this date at 03:19, this is 15 days after last apogee on 13 September 2062 at 08:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

3 days after previous North standstill on 25 September 2062 at 16:49 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.655°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.620° in the next southern standstill on 8 October 2062 at 21:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 days on 2 October 2062 at 18:49 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
