Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠156.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠181.6°. 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 apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 3 March 2064 at 17:31 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 March 2064 at 21:10 in ♓ Pisces.
