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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 8 April 2061 at 18:12 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 April 2061 at 03:02 in ♉ Taurus.
