The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 908 of Meeus index or 1861 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.48 days

Length of current 908 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 909 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 19 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 50 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠250°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠250°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠284.5°. 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 perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 31 May 2073 at 06:54 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 June 2073 at 21:26 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 380 159 km

Moon is 380 159 km (236 220 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 448 km (228 322 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 27 May 2073 at 15:39 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 June 2073 at 22:06 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 7 June 2073 at 13:47 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.587°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.607° in the next southern standstill on 20 June 2073 at 11:20 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 19 June 2073 at 18:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
