Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠354°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.2°. 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

9 days after point of perigee on 6 March 2095 at 16:04 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 March 2095 at 17:48 in ♍ Virgo.
