New lunation 426 / 1379

At 10:26 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 426 of Meeus index or 1379 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.33 days

29 days, 7 hours and 49 minutes is the length of new lunation 426. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 427 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠25.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠45.9°. 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 2034 at 21:42 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2034 at 00:19 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 367 915 km

Moon is 367 915 km (228 612 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 126 km (251 734 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 10 June 2034 at 13:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 June 2034 at 06:36 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon in northern standstill

At 18:29 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.417°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.423° in its southern standstill point on 30 June 2034 at 23:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
