Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠337.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠337.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠353.9°. 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

10 days after point of apogee on 9 March 2034 at 16:05 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 21 March 2034 at 18:12 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before northern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 13 March 2034 at 19:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.147°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.139° in the next northern standstill on 26 March 2034 at 12:34 in ♊ Gemini.
