Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠324.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠324.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠343.2°. 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 before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 12 March 2061 at 02:00 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 March 2061 at 21:11 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 371 892 km

Moon is 371 892 km (231 083 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 081 km (225 608 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 8 March 2061 at 23:14 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 March 2061 at 23:32 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 15 March 2061 at 03:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.381°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.422° in the next northern standstill on 28 March 2061 at 01:47 in ♋ Cancer.
