The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 945 of Meeus index or 1898 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.58 days

Length of current 945 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 51 minutes. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter than next lunation 946 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 56 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠114.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠114.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠145.4°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 00:36, this is 11 days after last apogee on 7 June 2076 at 01:18 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 4 July 2076 at 16:02 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 361 900 km

This perigee Moon is 361 900 km (224 874 mi) away from Earth. It is 608 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 456 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

2 days after its descending node on 17 June 2076 at 01:51 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 June 2076 at 03:27 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 18 June 2076 at 02:44 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.331°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.319° in the next northern standstill on 1 July 2076 at 09:39 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 1 July 2076 at 07:04 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
