Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2027 after 18 days on 15 October 2027 at 13:47.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 342 of Meeus index or 1295 from Brown series.
Length of current 342 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 55 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than next lunation 343 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠36.7°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 20:12, this is 15 days after last apogee on 11 September 2027 at 23:39 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 9 October 2027 at 15:47 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 363 455 km (225 840 mi) away from Earth. It is 947 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 901 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 26 September 2027 at 06:04 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 October 2027 at 14:58 in ♒ Aquarius.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 22 September 2027 at 20:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.015°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.921° in the next southern standstill on 5 October 2027 at 16:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 30 September 2027 at 02:36 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
