Lunation 339 / 1292

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 339 of Meeus index or 1292 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.31 days

Length of current 339 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 22 minutes. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 340 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠330.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠330.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠347.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 14:54, this is 11 days after last apogee on 25 May 2027 at 15:13 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 22 June 2027 at 05:08 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 361 703 km

This perigee Moon is 361 703 km (224 752 mi) away from Earth. It is 805 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 653 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 26 May 2027 at 15:22 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 June 2027 at 19:23 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 5 June 2027 at 10:02 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.143°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.134° in the next southern standstill on 18 June 2027 at 14:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 19 June 2027 at 00:44 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
