Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠167.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before apogee

Moon in northern standstill

At 07:14 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.478°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.617° in its southern standstill point on 18 September 2094 at 21:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
