Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠347.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠347.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.2°. 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 before perigee

12 days after point of apogee on 22 March 2087 at 11:38 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 April 2087 at 02:28 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 364 296 km

Moon is 364 296 km (226 363 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 973 km (222 434 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 24 March 2087 at 01:56 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 April 2087 at 03:50 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 25 March 2087 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.961°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.888° in the next northern standstill on 7 April 2087 at 18:11 in ♊ Gemini.
