Gibbous ♌ Leo
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 14 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 22 January 2027 at 12:17 UTC.
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1950".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2027.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 334 of Meeus index or 1287 from Brown series.
The length of the 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 the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 6 hours and 48 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 15 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠184.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠210.4°.
1 day after point of perigee on 21 January 2027 at 21:49 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 3 February 2027 at 13:31 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 364 162 km (226 280 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 189 km (252 394 mi).
11 days after ascending node on 10 January 2027 at 15:58 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 23 January 2027 at 17:26 in ♌ Leo.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 19 January 2027 at 23:16 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.682°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.706° at the point of next southern standstill on 2 February 2027 at 02:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
