Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 6 May 2027 at 10:58.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2027 after 10 days on 20 May 2027 at 10:59.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 338 of Meeus index or 1291 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 20 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 2 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 7 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠308.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠330.4°.
Moon is at perigee at 20:07. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 27 April 2027 at 21:21 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next apogee on 25 May 2027 at 15:13 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 366 635 km (227 816 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 127 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 721 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after ascending node on 29 April 2027 at 13:24 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 May 2027 at 17:03 in ♌ Leo.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 01:45 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠27.225°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-27.162° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 22 May 2027 at 08:52.
In 10 days on 20 May 2027 at 10:59 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
