Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠19.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠19.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠38.1°. 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

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 12 September 2089 at 09:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.244°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.219° in the next northern standstill on 26 September 2089 at 20:57 in ♊ Gemini.
