The Moon is 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1164 of Meeus index or 2117 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.42 days

Length of current 1164 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 1 minute. It is 8 minutes longer than next lunation 1165 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠7.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠24.6°. 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

7 days after point of perigee on 14 February 2094 at 18:39 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 February 2094 at 15:03 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 392 171 km

Moon is 392 171 km (243 684 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 118 km (252 350 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 12 February 2094 at 12:56 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 February 2094 at 12:58 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 12 February 2094 at 06:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.529°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.582° in the next northern standstill on 25 February 2094 at 05:34 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 2 March 2094 at 07:35 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
