Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 26 July 2027 at 16:55.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2027 after 16 days on 17 August 2027 at 07:29.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
12 days after point of apogee on 19 July 2027 at 11:52 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 August 2027 at 06:28 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 364 941 km (226 764 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 362 km (222 054 mi).
11 days after ascending node on 19 July 2027 at 23:33 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 August 2027 at 12:33 in ♌ Leo.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 30 July 2027 at 05:47 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.208°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.209° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 August 2027 at 02:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 1 day on 2 August 2027 at 10:05 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
