Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠258.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠258.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠292.8°. 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 apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 21 March 2036 at 21:41 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 April 2036 at 09:36 in ♌ Leo.

3 days after its descending node on 24 March 2036 at 11:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 April 2036 at 19:59 in ♌ Leo.
