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 1168 of Meeus index or 2121 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.56 days

Length of current 1168 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 1169 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠109.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠109.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠141.9°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 13:22, this is 15 days after last perigee on 2 June 2094 at 22:20 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 30 June 2094 at 11:51 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 404 846 km

This apogee Moon is 404 846 km (251 560 mi) away from Earth. It is 562 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 863 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

4 days after its ascending node on 14 June 2094 at 04:44 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 June 2094 at 10:31 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 14 June 2094 at 13:39 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.310°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.311° in the next southern standstill on 28 June 2094 at 17:52 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 28 June 2094 at 09:58 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
