Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠308.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠308.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠330.8°. 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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 22 February 2087 at 20:55 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 March 2087 at 18:05 in ♈ Aries.
