Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠165.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠165.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠189.5°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 19:25, this is 13 days after last perigee on 4 April 2091 at 03:26 in ♎ Libra.
