Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.7°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 12 April 2094 at 03:26 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 April 2094 at 23:58 in ♌ Leo.
