The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1153 of Meeus index or 2106 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.54 days

Length of current 1153 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1154 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠73.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠73.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠109.2°. 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 before apogee

12 days after point of perigee on 21 March 2093 at 10:04 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 3 April 2093 at 11:21 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 405 065 km

Moon is 405 065 km (251 696 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 205 km (251 161 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 22 March 2093 at 12:52 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 5 April 2093 at 10:03 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 20 March 2093 at 23:15 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.054°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.174° in the next northern standstill on 3 April 2093 at 16:04 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 11 April 2093 at 16:35 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
