True anomaly ∠143.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠143.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠169.7°. 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

9 days after point of perigee on 1 November 2096 at 07:33 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 November 2096 at 05:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 4 November 2096 at 10:38 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.978°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.983° in the next southern standstill on 18 November 2096 at 19:29 in ♑ Capricorn.
