True anomaly ∠213.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠213.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠244.2°. 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 25 May 2029 at 22:19 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 June 2029 at 22:09 in ♈ Aries.
