Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠159.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠159.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠183°. 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

5 days after point of apogee on 8 April 2065 at 00:30 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 April 2065 at 02:34 in ♏ Scorpio.
