Crescent ♌ Leo
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 3% and growing larger. The 2 days young Moon is in ♌ Leo.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 4 July 2027 at 03:02.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2027 after 13 days on 18 July 2027 at 15:45.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 340 of Meeus index or 1293 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 3 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2027. It is 33 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 41 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 28 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠347.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠2.6°.
1 day after point of perigee on 4 July 2027 at 20:55 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 July 2027 at 11:52 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 363 298 km (225 743 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 217 km (252 412 mi).
12 days after ascending node on 22 June 2027 at 18:25 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 July 2027 at 02:14 in ♌ Leo.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 2 July 2027 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.165°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.184° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 July 2027 at 20:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 18 July 2027 at 15:45 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
