Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠53.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠53.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠84.4°. 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 after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 2 June 2059 at 22:39 in ♓ Pisces. 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 2059 at 01:27 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 382 392 km

Moon is 382 392 km (237 607 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 358 km (251 256 mi).

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 29 May 2059 at 17:41 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.652°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.629° in the next northern standstill on 11 June 2059 at 17:24 in ♋ Cancer.
