Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠333.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠333.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠350.2°. 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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 31 March 2070 at 17:01 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 April 2070 at 16:43 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 366 899 km

Moon is 366 899 km (227 980 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 956 km (224 288 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 09:00 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 24 April 2070 at 13:41 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 2 April 2070 at 03:16 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.755°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.748° in the next northern standstill on 15 April 2070 at 06:43 in ♊ Gemini.
