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 1105 of Meeus index or 2058 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.36 days

Length of current 1105 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 38 minutes longer than next lunation 1106 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠310.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.7°. 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 apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 13 May 2089 at 16:16 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 May 2089 at 11:27 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 26 May 2089 at 04:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.583°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.600° in the next northern standstill on 9 June 2089 at 06:40 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 8 June 2089 at 18:44 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
