Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠34.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠34.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠58.5°. 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 4 November 2045 at 21:44 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 November 2045 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 29 October 2045 at 17:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.401°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.320° in the next southern standstill on 11 November 2045 at 15:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 8 November 2045 at 21:49 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
