Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠76.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠112.4°. 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

7 days after point of perigee on 29 September 2097 at 06:20 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 October 2097 at 16:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days after previous North standstill on 28 September 2097 at 13:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.911°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.965° in the next southern standstill on 12 October 2097 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
