New lunation 327 / 1280

At 02:54 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 327 of Meeus index or 1280 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.28 days

29 days, 6 hours and 49 minutes is the length of new lunation 327. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2026. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than next lunation 328 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠2.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠2.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠18°. 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 14 June 2026 at 23:18 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 June 2026 at 07:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 363 567 km

Moon is 363 567 km (225 910 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 267 km (252 443 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 7 June 2026 at 06:19 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2026 at 17:57 in ♌ Leo.

Moon in northern standstill

At 05:29 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.989°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.988° in its southern standstill point on 28 June 2026 at 22:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.
