Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠20.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠20.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠40.9°. 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 6 January 2092 at 12:22 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 January 2092 at 05:57 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 26 December 2091 at 05:43 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.486°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.466° in the next southern standstill on 8 January 2092 at 08:40 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 9 January 2092 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
