Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠254.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠254.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠288.5°. 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 after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 5 June 2055 at 06:32 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 June 2055 at 13:16 in ♓ Pisces.
