Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠67.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠67.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠104.1°. 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 before apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 22 February 2030 at 10:01 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 March 2030 at 02:23 in ♉ Taurus.
