Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠215.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠215.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠248.6°. 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 perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 16 October 2032 at 21:27 in ♓ Pisces. 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 28 October 2032 at 18:22 in ♌ Leo.
