Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠13.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠13.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠31.2°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 15 July 2061 at 03:23 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 July 2061 at 02:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 367 672 km

Moon is 367 672 km (228 461 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 826 km (251 547 mi).

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 15 July 2061 at 13:04 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.294°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.342° in the next southern standstill on 29 July 2061 at 09:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
