The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 698 of Meeus index or 1651 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.55 days

Length of current 698 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 48 minutes longer than next lunation 699 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 32 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 31 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠222.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠222.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠255.1°. 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

6 days after point of perigee on 25 June 2056 at 03:02 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 7 July 2056 at 00:55 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 390 563 km

Moon is 390 563 km (242 685 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 772 km (251 514 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 28 June 2056 at 11:14 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 July 2056 at 21:09 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 27 June 2056 at 19:17 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.003°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.004° in the next northern standstill on 12 July 2056 at 03:18 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 12 July 2056 at 20:20 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
