Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠23.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠23.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠43°. 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 apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 7 July 2052 at 12:41 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 July 2052 at 08:05 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon in southern standstill

At 04:04 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.479°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.413° in its northern standstill point on 23 July 2052 at 14:42 in ♊ Gemini.
