Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠21°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠21°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠40.5°. 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

7 days after point of apogee on 31 May 2069 at 17:30 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 June 2069 at 13:22 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 5 June 2069 at 10:11 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.943°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.940° in the next northern standstill on 18 June 2069 at 12:47 in ♊ Gemini.
