Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 14% and growing larger. The 4 days young Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 30 September 2027 at 02:36.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1918".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2027 after 12 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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 343 of Meeus index or 1296 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute. It is 2 hours and 48 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 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 25 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠36.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠61.7°.
5 days after point of perigee on 27 September 2027 at 20:12 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 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 9 October 2027 at 15:47 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 387 364 km (240 697 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 531 km (251 364 mi).
7 days after descending node on 26 September 2027 at 06:04 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 9 October 2027 at 14:58 in ♒ Aquarius.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 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 2 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 12 days on 15 October 2027 at 13:47 in ♈ Aries 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.
