Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠76.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠110.9°. 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

7 days after point of apogee on 9 July 2095 at 01:10 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 July 2095 at 04:21 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon in southern standstill

At 07:31 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-24.908°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠24.923° in its northern standstill point on 29 July 2095 at 04:07 in ♋ Cancer.
