Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠109.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠109.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠142°. 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 apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 1 May 2093 at 06:12 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 May 2093 at 03:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.
