Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠358.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠13.9°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 04:48, this is 13 days after last perigee on 19 May 2061 at 12:47 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 16 June 2061 at 22:16 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 406 301 km

This apogee Moon is 406 301 km (252 464 mi) away from Earth. It is 893 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 408 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
