True anomaly ∠43.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠43.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠70.2°. 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°).

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 2 July 2051 at 20:59 in ♈ Aries. 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 15 July 2051 at 16:49 in ♎ Libra.
