This New Moon true anomaly is ∠78.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠115.9°. 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 16 November 2098 at 08:08 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 November 2098 at 00:33 in ♓ Pisces.
