Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠83.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠83.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠120.7°. 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

7 days after point of perigee on 15 February 2039 at 17:30 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 March 2039 at 22:42 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 387 955 km

Moon is 387 955 km (241 064 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 389 km (251 276 mi).

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 19 February 2039 at 06:19 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.002°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.115° in the next northern standstill on 5 March 2039 at 12:11 in ♋ Cancer.
