Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠102°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠102°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠137.9°. 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

10 days after point of apogee on 25 January 2091 at 14:57 in ♈ Aries. 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 February 2091 at 09:12 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 1 February 2091 at 06:49 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.537°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.496° in the next southern standstill on 14 February 2091 at 00:36 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 18 February 2091 at 09:38 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
