Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 28 November 2027 at 03:24.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1813"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1813" and ∠1945".

Cold Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2027 after 14 days on 13 December 2027 at 16:09.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 345 / 1298

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 345 of Meeus index or 1298 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.7 days

Length of current 345 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 346 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠96°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠96°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠132.4°. 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 19 November 2027 at 00:10 in ♌ Leo. 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 4 December 2027 at 08:42 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 395 402 km

Moon is 395 402 km (245 691 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 663 km (251 446 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 19 November 2027 at 08:34 in ♌ Leo, 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 2 December 2027 at 19:38 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon in southern standstill

At 09:10 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.574°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2027. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.569° in its northern standstill point on 13 December 2027 at 16:06 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 13 December 2027 at 16:09 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
