Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠349.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠349.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠4.9°. 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
