Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠38.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠38.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠64.2°. 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°).

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 12 June 2007 at 17:07 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 June 2007 at 14:25 in ♎ Libra.
