True anomaly ∠154.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠154.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠179.8°. 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

13 days after point of perigee on 15 January 2063 at 06:21 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 January 2063 at 13:00 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2063 at 23:21 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.406°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.472° in the next northern standstill on 9 February 2063 at 10:17 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 29 January 2063 at 12:23 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
