Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 4 June 2027 at 19:40.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2027 after 12 days on 19 June 2027 at 00:44.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 339 of Meeus index or 1292 from Brown series.
Length of current 339 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 22 minutes. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 340 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠330.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠347.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 14:54, this is 11 days after last apogee on 25 May 2027 at 15:13 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 22 June 2027 at 05:08 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 361 703 km (224 752 mi) away from Earth. It is 805 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 653 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after its ascending node on 26 May 2027 at 15:22 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 June 2027 at 19:23 in ♌ Leo.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 5 June 2027 at 10:02 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.143°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.134° in the next southern standstill on 18 June 2027 at 14:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 19 June 2027 at 00:44 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
