Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠45.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.7°. 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 12 April 2094 at 03:26 in ♓ Pisces. 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 23 April 2094 at 23:58 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 399 128 km

Moon is 399 128 km (248 007 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 400 km (251 283 mi).

New draconic month

At 16:57 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon in northern standstill

At 20:13 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.077°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.185° in its southern standstill point on 5 May 2094 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn.
