This New Moon true anomaly is ∠133°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠161.9°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 13 February 2047 at 00:46 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 March 2047 at 00:38 in ♉ Taurus.
