Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠293.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠293.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠319.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 3 April 2097 at 02:31 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 April 2097 at 21:49 in ♉ Taurus.
