Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠264.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠264.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠298.1°. 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 perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 12 April 2080 at 02:12 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 24 April 2080 at 09:33 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 382 281 km

Moon is 382 281 km (237 538 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 380 km (228 901 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 18 April 2080 at 16:44 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 May 2080 at 13:38 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 10 April 2080 at 12:43 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.592°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.551° in the next northern standstill on 24 April 2080 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer.
