Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠309.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠309.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.3°. 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 before perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 29 August 2029 at 04:45 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2029 at 04:27 in ♎ Libra.
