There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 1073 / 2026

At 17:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1073 of Meeus index or 2026 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.75 days

29 days, 17 hours and 57 minutes is the length of new lunation 1073. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2086. It is 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1074 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠181.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠181.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠206.3°. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 7 October 2086 at 14:11 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 October 2086 at 22:00 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 155 km

Moon is 405 155 km (251 752 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 173 km (221 937 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 27 September 2086 at 11:17 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 October 2086 at 22:52 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 28 September 2086 at 08:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.839°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.722° in the next southern standstill on 13 October 2086 at 01:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.
