Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠24.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠24.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠45.7°. 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 15 March 2094 at 04:25 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 March 2094 at 05:18 in ♌ Leo.
