Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠66°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠66°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠99.8°. 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 before apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 20 June 2068 at 10:58 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 July 2068 at 16:27 in ♍ Virgo.
