The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 808 of Meeus index or 1761 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.65 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 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 2 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 13 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠183°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠183°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠206.9°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 19 May 2065 at 12:57 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 1 June 2065 at 09:08 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 364 615 km

The Moon is 364 615 km (226 561 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 272 km (252 446 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 11 May 2065 at 14:42 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 May 2065 at 02:55 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 8 May 2065 at 11:49 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.222°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-26.190° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 May 2065 at 12:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
