Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠179.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠179.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠203.1°. 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°).
