Anomaly may refer to:

==Astronomy and celestial mechanics == * In astronomy, an anomaly of an elliptical orbit, generally measured with respect to an apsis, usually the periapsis * Eccentric anomaly, an intermediate value used to compute the position of a celestial object as a function of time * Flyby anomaly, an unexpected energy increase during the flybys of the Earth by various satellites * Mean anomaly, a measure of time in the study of orbital dynamics * Pioneer anomaly, the observed deviation of the trajectories of some unmanned space probes, and especially Pioneer 10 and Pioneer 11 * South Atlantic Anomaly, an area where the Earth's inner Van Allen radiation belt comes closest to the Earth's surface * True anomaly, the angle between the direction of periapsis and the current position of an object on its orbit * Anomalous precession, another term for "apsidal precession"
