Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠104.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠104.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠137°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 7 July 2050 at 02:25 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 July 2050 at 20:27 in ♍ Virgo.
