True anomaly ∠323.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠323.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠342.5°. 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 before perigee
