Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠278.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠278.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠308.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 31 March 2027 at 01:33 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 April 2027 at 00:41 in ♌ Leo.
