Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 7 January 2027 at 20:24.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2027 after 13 days on 22 January 2027 at 12:17.
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.
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 334 of Meeus index or 1287 from Brown series.
Length of current 334 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 32 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2027. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 335 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠184.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠210.4°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 7 January 2027 at 08:10 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 January 2027 at 21:49 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 403 593 km (250 781 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 285 km (222 007 mi).
13 days after its descending node on 27 December 2026 at 07:55 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 January 2027 at 15:58 in ♒ Aquarius.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 5 January 2027 at 20:46 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.636°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.682° in the next northern standstill on 19 January 2027 at 23:16 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 22 January 2027 at 12:17 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
