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

6 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 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 July 2050 at 20:27 in ♍ Virgo.
