The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2027.

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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 4 July 2027 at 20:55 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 July 2027 at 11:52 in ♒ Aquarius.

2 days after previous South standstill on 15 July 2027 at 20:16 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.184°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.208° in the next northern standstill on 30 July 2027 at 05:47 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
