Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠348.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.5°. 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 before perigee

13 days after point of apogee on 23 July 2089 at 06:57 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 6 August 2089 at 03:33 in ♌ Leo.

7 days after its descending node on 28 July 2089 at 12:48 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 August 2089 at 02:59 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 3 August 2089 at 05:21 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.449°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.382° in the next southern standstill on 16 August 2089 at 02:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 6 August 2089 at 08:28 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
