The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 791 of Meeus index or 1744 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.69 days

Length of current 791 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 792 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠88.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠88.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠125.9°. 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

10 days after point of apogee on 26 December 2063 at 09:48 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 January 2064 at 03:30 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 369 834 km

Moon is 369 834 km (229 804 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 135 km (226 884 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 24 December 2063 at 11:46 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 January 2064 at 06:27 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 3 January 2064 at 00:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.781°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.815° in the next southern standstill on 15 January 2064 at 20:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 18 January 2064 at 12:37 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
