Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠226°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠226°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠259.5°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 14 June 2038 at 15:26 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 June 2038 at 12:55 in ♈ Aries.
