Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠186.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠186.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠212°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 00:42, this is 14 days after last apogee on 15 September 2050 at 09:55 in ♍ Virgo.
