This New Moon true anomaly is ∠72.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠109.3°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 23 November 2054 at 15:48 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 December 2054 at 16:51 in ♓ Pisces.
