Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠353.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠353.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠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 apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 19 April 2034 at 04:07 in ♉ Taurus. 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 3 May 2034 at 06:24 in ♏ Scorpio.
