Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 327 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 49 minutes. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 07:11, this is 13 days after last perigee on 14 June 2026 at 23:18 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 13 July 2026 at 07:50 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 406 267 km

This apogee Moon is 406 267 km (252 443 mi) away from Earth. It is 859 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 442 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 19 June 2026 at 17:57 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 July 2026 at 07:51 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon in southern standstill

At 22:06 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-27.988°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠28.033° in its northern standstill point on 12 July 2026 at 15:18 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 29 June 2026 at 23:57 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
