Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠337.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠337.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354°. 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 before perigee
