Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 23 September 2027 at 10:20.
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.
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°.
Moon is at perigee at 20:12. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 11 September 2027 at 23:39 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until 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 further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after descending node on 26 September 2027 at 06:04 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 9 October 2027 at 14:58 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 22 September 2027 at 20:33 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.015°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.921° at the point of next southern standstill on 5 October 2027 at 16:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 30 September 2027 at 02:36 in ♎ Libra 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.
