True anomaly ∠228.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠228.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠264.5°. 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 after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 3 March 2080 at 11:22 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 March 2080 at 06:06 in ♑ Capricorn.
