Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠106.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠106.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠141.1°. 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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 16 November 2053 at 03:37 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 27 November 2053 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini.
