True anomaly ∠190.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠190.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠217.2°. 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

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 9 November 2033 at 16:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.369°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.438° in the next southern standstill on 24 November 2033 at 06:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
