Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠282.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠282.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠312.2°. 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°).
