Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠41.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠41.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠69°. 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 after apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 19 November 2072 at 08:15 in ♓ Pisces. 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 4 December 2072 at 11:52 in ♎ Libra.
