Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠266.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠266.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠299.9°. 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 apogee
