Distance to Moon 363 770 km

The Moon is 363 770 km (226 036 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 577 km (252 635 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 13 March 2082 at 11:29 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 March 2082 at 13:54 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 8 March 2082 at 11:16 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.286°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.248° at the point of next southern standstill on 20 March 2082 at 23:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 29 March 2082 at 09:05 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
