Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠109.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠109.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠143.9°. 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 apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 18 December 2054 at 16:08 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 January 2055 at 13:48 in ♓ Pisces.
