Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠259.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠259.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠293.3°. 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

4 days after point of perigee on 11 July 2038 at 19:32 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 July 2038 at 07:19 in ♉ Taurus.
