Lunation 339 / 1292

The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 22 June 2027 at 05:08 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2027 at 20:55 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 372 580 km

Moon is 372 580 km (231 510 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 284 km (222 627 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 22 June 2027 at 18:25 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 6 July 2027 at 02:14 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 18 June 2027 at 14:51 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.134°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.165° in the next northern standstill on 2 July 2027 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 4 July 2027 at 03:02 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
