Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠345.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠0.9°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 28 December 2084 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 January 2085 at 05:03 in ♌ Leo.

2 days after previous North standstill on 8 January 2085 at 06:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.917°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.889° in the next southern standstill on 22 January 2085 at 16:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.
