Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠335.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠335.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠352.1°. 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 before perigee

11 days after point of apogee on 16 April 2052 at 17:03 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 April 2052 at 14:35 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 19 April 2052 at 06:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.346°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.384° in the next northern standstill on 2 May 2052 at 05:36 in ♊ Gemini.
