Crescent ♍ Virgo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2027 after 15 days on 15 September 2027 at 23:04.
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 17:41 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 342 of Meeus index or 1295 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 55 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 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 3 hours and 49 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠18.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠36.7°.
1 day after point of perigee on 30 August 2027 at 15:36 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 11 September 2027 at 23:39 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 365 205 km (226 928 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 384 km (251 894 mi).
1 day after descending node on 29 August 2027 at 23:01 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 September 2027 at 11:26 in ♒ Aquarius.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 26 August 2027 at 14:14 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.172°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.122° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 September 2027 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
