Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠80.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠80.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠115.1°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 14:18, this is 12 days after last apogee on 27 June 2077 at 13:19 in ♍ Virgo.
