Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠152.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠152.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠176.4°. 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 12 August 2041 at 16:02 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 27 August 2041 at 02:03 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 9 August 2041 at 04:03 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.426°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.495° in the next northern standstill on 21 August 2041 at 21:17 in ♊ Gemini.
