This New Moon true anomaly is ∠129.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠159.2°. 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°).

After 3 days on 5 April 2065 at 19:01 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
