The Moon is 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 807 of Meeus index or 1760 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.69 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 29 minutes. It is 55 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 45 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 18 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠159.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠159.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠183°.

Moon after apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 8 April 2065 at 00:30 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 April 2065 at 02:34 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 386 281 km

The Moon is 386 281 km (240 024 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 951 km (221 799 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 13:32 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 26 April 2065 at 23:17 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 11 April 2065 at 06:32 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.411°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.324° at the point of next southern standstill on 24 April 2065 at 02:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 20 April 2065 at 18:36 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
