This New Moon true anomaly is ∠127.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.8°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 26 September 2025 at 09:46 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 October 2025 at 12:36 in ♉ Taurus.
