Moon ♍ Virgo
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 20 February 2027 at 23:23 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 about ∠25° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1940".
The Full Moon this days is the Snow of February 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 335 of Meeus index or 1288 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 33 minutes. It is 3 hours and 11 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 4 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 14 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠210.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠242.4°.
1 day after point of perigee on 19 February 2027 at 07:30 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 3 March 2027 at 05:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 367 192 km (228 163 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 221 km (251 793 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 04:40 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 6 March 2027 at 04:41 in ♒ Aquarius.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 16 February 2027 at 07:59 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.710°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.684° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 March 2027 at 09:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
