Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠274.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠274.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠305.3°. 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

5 days after point of perigee on 24 April 2045 at 22:26 in ♌ Leo. 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 8 May 2045 at 09:24 in ♒ Aquarius.
