True anomaly ∠178.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠178.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠202°. 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°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 09:08, this is 14 days after last apogee on 29 June 2022 at 06:08 in ♋ Cancer.
