True anomaly ∠206.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠206.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠235.2°. 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

2 days after point of apogee on 14 April 2064 at 02:09 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 April 2064 at 13:49 in ♎ Libra.
