Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠298.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠298.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠322.9°. 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

9 days after point of perigee on 11 June 2081 at 17:00 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2081 at 03:39 in ♓ Pisces.

7 days after its descending node on 13 June 2081 at 20:45 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 June 2081 at 15:47 in ♓ Pisces.
