Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠100.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠100.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠135.6°. 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

9 days after point of perigee on 5 March 2048 at 02:21 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 20 March 2048 at 14:41 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 7 March 2048 at 13:15 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.235°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.093° in the next northern standstill on 21 March 2048 at 12:10 in ♊ Gemini.
