Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠133.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠161.2°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 3 September 2069 at 20:15 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 September 2069 at 17:06 in ♏ Scorpio.
