Gibbous ♈ Aries
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 15 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 15 September 2027 at 23:04 UTC.
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♈ Aries later.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1803" and ∠1909".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2027.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°.
4 days after point of apogee on 11 September 2027 at 23:39 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 September 2027 at 20:12 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 397 615 km (247 067 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 455 km (225 840 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 12 September 2027 at 11:26 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 26 September 2027 at 06:04 in ♌ Leo.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 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 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.015° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 September 2027 at 20:33 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
