Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2027 after 14 days on 18 July 2027 at 15:45.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 03:02 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 340 of Meeus index or 1293 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 3 minutes is the length of new lunation 340. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2027. It is 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 341 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠347.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠2.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 20:55, this is 12 days after last apogee on 22 June 2027 at 05:08 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 July 2027 at 11:52 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 358 284 km (222 627 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 224 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 072 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after its ascending node on 22 June 2027 at 18:25 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 July 2027 at 02:14 in ♌ Leo.
11 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 2 July 2027 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.165°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.184° in the next southern standstill on 15 July 2027 at 20:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
