Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠176.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠200.1°. 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 before apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 26 March 2100 at 14:59 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 April 2100 at 01:45 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 405 388 km

Moon is 405 388 km (251 896 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 566 km (252 628 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 6 April 2100 at 22:10 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 April 2100 at 05:33 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 31 March 2100 at 15:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.525°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.446° in the next northern standstill on 15 April 2100 at 08:21 in ♊ Gemini.
