The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1144 of Meeus index or 2097 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.57 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 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 1 hour longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 3 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠215.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠215.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠246.7°.

Moon before apogee

11 days after point of apogee on 1 July 2092 at 10:09 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 July 2092 at 01:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 369 082 km

The Moon is 369 082 km (229 337 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 975 km (224 921 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 7 July 2092 at 07:36 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 July 2092 at 04:19 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 4 July 2092 at 12:51 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.112°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.092° at the point of next southern standstill on 17 July 2092 at 20:34 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 19 July 2092 at 00:24 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
