Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠25.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠45.9°. 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

10 days after point of apogee on 27 June 2034 at 00:19 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 July 2034 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini.
