Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠351.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠351.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠6.9°. 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 perigee

11 days after point of apogee on 31 December 2031 at 13:16 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 January 2032 at 07:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
