The Moon is 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 883 of Meeus index or 1836 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.29 days

Length of current 883 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 4 minutes. It is 28 minutes longer than next lunation 884 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 29 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠334°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠334°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠350.4°. 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 after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 31 May 2071 at 00:58 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 June 2071 at 11:49 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 373 138 km

Moon is 373 138 km (231 857 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 978 km (252 263 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 24 May 2071 at 23:39 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 June 2071 at 13:14 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 30 May 2071 at 20:30 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.383°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.428° in the next southern standstill on 13 June 2071 at 08:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 12 June 2071 at 17:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
