Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 15 March 2027 at 16:25.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2027 after 2 days on 22 March 2027 at 10:44.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 336 of Meeus index or 1289 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 22 minutes. It is 3 hours and 15 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 1 hour and 38 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 25 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠242.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠278.5°.
Moon is at perigee at 04:31. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 3 March 2027 at 05:41 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 31 March 2027 at 01:33 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 366 440 km (227 695 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 932 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 916 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 13:05 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 2 April 2027 at 10:17 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.
3 days since the previous standstill on 15 March 2027 at 14:15 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.611°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.526° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 March 2027 at 17:43 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 22 March 2027 at 10:44 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
