Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠37.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠62.5°. 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 7 June 2086 at 01:37 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 June 2086 at 09:56 in ♎ Libra.
