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 after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 8 May 2094 at 13:33 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 21 May 2094 at 19:13 in ♌ Leo.
