The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 961 of Meeus index or 1914 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.72 days

Length of current 961 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 14 minutes. It is 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 962 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠171°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠171°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠194.6°. 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

3 days after point of perigee on 1 October 2077 at 22:59 in ♈ Aries. 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 October 2077 at 08:01 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 25 September 2077 at 19:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.269°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.357° in the next northern standstill on 8 October 2077 at 07:01 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 16 October 2077 at 23:07 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
