Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 75% and growing larger. The 10 days young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 7 September 2027 at 18:31.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2027 after 5 days on 15 September 2027 at 23:04.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠18.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠36.7°.
10 days 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 11 September 2027 at 23:39 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 403 888 km (250 964 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 384 km (251 894 mi).
11 days after descending node on 29 August 2027 at 23:01 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 September 2027 at 11:26 in ♒ Aquarius.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 8 September 2027 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.122°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.015° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 September 2027 at 20:33 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 days on 15 September 2027 at 23:04 in ♓ Pisces 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.
