Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠265.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠265.3°. 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 apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 4 July 2082 at 20:11 in ♎ Libra. 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 17 July 2082 at 16:24 in ♈ Aries.
