Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠350.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠350.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠5.3°. 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 perigee

12 days after point of apogee on 15 June 2071 at 11:49 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 28 June 2071 at 08:00 in ♋ Cancer.

6 days after its descending node on 21 June 2071 at 02:58 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 July 2071 at 14:17 in ♍ Virgo.
