The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1117 of Meeus index or 2070 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 1117 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 17 minutes. It is 2 hours and 35 minutes longer than next lunation 1118 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠246°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠246°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠280.8°. 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

10 days after point of apogee on 24 April 2090 at 10:58 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 May 2090 at 05:31 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 372 402 km

Moon is 372 402 km (231 400 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 931 km (228 000 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 26 April 2090 at 12:13 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 May 2090 at 23:10 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 3 May 2090 at 15:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.290°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.355° in the next southern standstill on 16 May 2090 at 12:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
