Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠114.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠114.1°. 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 before apogee

11 days after point of perigee on 22 May 2076 at 07:47 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 June 2076 at 01:18 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 396 905 km

Moon is 396 905 km (246 625 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 950 km (251 624 mi).

Moon in ascending node
