Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠250°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠250°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠284.5°. 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 apogee

11 days after point of perigee on 15 June 2073 at 21:26 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 June 2073 at 01:09 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 20 June 2073 at 11:20 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.607°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.610° in the next northern standstill on 4 July 2073 at 22:14 in ♋ Cancer.
