Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠225.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠225.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠260.4°. 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
