Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠18.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.4°. 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 before apogee
