Gibbous ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 13 April 2027 at 22:57.
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 ∠16° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1912".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2027 after 5 days on 20 April 2027 at 22:27.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 337 of Meeus index or 1290 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 7 minutes. It is 2 hours and 25 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 37 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 32 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠278.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠308.6°.
1 day after point of perigee on 14 April 2027 at 00:41 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 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 27 April 2027 at 21:21 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 364 664 km (226 592 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 170 km (251 140 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 16:31 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 29 April 2027 at 13:24 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 11 April 2027 at 19:29 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.412°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.312° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 April 2027 at 01:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 5 days on 20 April 2027 at 22:27 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.
