Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠37.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠62.7°. 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 apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 28 June 2087 at 01:08 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 July 2087 at 22:18 in ♏ Scorpio.
