Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠113.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠113.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠145.4°. 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

2 days after point of apogee on 20 April 2075 at 18:02 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 May 2075 at 16:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
