This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.4°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:53, this is 15 days after last apogee on 29 October 2028 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces.
