Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1941" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2027 after 16 days on 15 October 2027 at 13:47.
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.
29 days, 8 hours and 55 minutes is the length of new lunation 342. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 27 September 2027 at 20:12 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 October 2027 at 15:47 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 369 195 km (229 407 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 531 km (251 364 mi).
3 days 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 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 October 2027 at 14:58 in ♒ Aquarius.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 22 September 2027 at 20:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.015°. Next 6 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
