Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠43.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠43.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠70.2°. 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 perigee

12 days after point of apogee on 17 June 2051 at 22:14 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 July 2051 at 20:59 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 23 June 2051 at 11:15 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.227°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.198° in the next northern standstill on 6 July 2051 at 11:58 in ♊ Gemini.
