Apogee and perigee of the Moon in 2020 year
The moon moves around the Earth along an elongated, elliptical orbit, making one revolution in a month. Accordingly, once a month it approaches our planet and passes the point of perigee, and once a month it moves away from the Earth, thereby passing the point of apogee.
The term "perigee" is derived from the Greek words περί "peri" - around, near, near, and Gaia Γαία - Earth and means that the mutual distance between the Moon and the Earth at this point of the orbit is minimal. The Perigee of the Moon ranges from 356,400 to 370,400 kilometers.
The term "apogee" comes from the Greek words από "apo" - from, from, and Gaia Γαία - Earth and means that the mutual distance between the Moon and the Earth at this point of the orbit is maximized. The apogee of the Moon is from 404,000 to 406,700 km. City New York.

"Companion" of our planet has a specific trajectory of motion in the form of an ellipse. The nearest point of the orbit of the celestial body (the Moon) to the center of gravity, that is, to the Earth - perigee. Opposite to it - the apogee of the Moon - the most distant point from the Earth of the lunar orbit.
When the moon is at its apogee, we have increased efficiency, fearlessness. There may be excessive optimism, recklessness, like "the sea knee-deep." For example, while driving, the driver may lose caution and not feel the speed, the rhythm of the movement.
Emotionally, at this time, a person has a high degree of involvement, that is, it can be inconspicuously drawn into the "black hole" of relationships, events. On such days it is difficult to feel the edge of what is permitted and possible, therefore, the number of injuries and accidents usually increases.
At this time, you need to try not to lose control over yourself and the situation, monitor all "over-", slow down yourself, and limit the intake of any stimulants, starting with coffee. By the way, when the Moon at apogee, as far from the Earth as possible, the influence of its phases and signs of the Zodiac is somewhat weakened.
