Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠117°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠117°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠148.6°. 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

11 days after point of perigee on 24 March 2057 at 08:23 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 April 2057 at 05:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 396 294 km

Moon is 396 294 km (246 246 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 996 km (251 653 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 27 March 2057 at 19:16 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 April 2057 at 19:48 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 28 March 2057 at 01:43 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.258°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.399° in the next northern standstill on 11 April 2057 at 06:46 in ♋ Cancer.
