Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠99°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠99°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠135.1°. 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 perigee
