Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠44°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠44°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠72.4°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 15:48, this is 14 days after last apogee on 8 November 2054 at 19:52 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 18 November 2054 at 17:11 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.632°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.707° in the next southern standstill on 1 December 2054 at 17:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
