Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠15°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠15°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠33.6°. 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

15 days after point of apogee on 19 January 2084 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 February 2084 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 2 February 2084 at 09:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.324°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.289° in the next northern standstill on 15 February 2084 at 18:41 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 6 February 2084 at 04:53 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
