Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠54.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠54.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠86.4°. 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

3 days after point of perigee on 29 September 2062 at 03:19 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 October 2062 at 03:14 in ♑ Capricorn.
