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 946 of Meeus index or 1899 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.63 days

Length of current 946 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 1 minute. It is 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 947 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 46 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠145.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠145.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠170.2°. 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 before apogee

10 days after point of perigee on 17 July 2076 at 05:58 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 August 2076 at 00:12 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 397 150 km

Moon is 397 150 km (246 778 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 563 km (252 627 mi).

Moon in ascending node

New draconic month

At 08:20 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 15 July 2076 at 12:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.329°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.331° in the next northern standstill on 28 July 2076 at 15:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 30 July 2076 at 22:05 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
