Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠240°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠240°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠274.9°. 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 18 June 2047 at 10:22 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2047 at 04:56 in ♏ Scorpio.

13 days after its ascending node on 10 June 2047 at 02:05 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 June 2047 at 13:16 in ♋ Cancer.
