Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 29 October 2027 at 13:36.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1842" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2027 after 13 days on 14 November 2027 at 03:26.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 344 of Meeus index or 1297 from Brown series.
Length of current 344 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 48 minutes. It is 3 hours shorter than next lunation 345 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠61.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠96°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 25 October 2027 at 05:36 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 November 2027 at 11:37 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 389 188 km (241 830 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 183 km (251 148 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 23 October 2027 at 08:15 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 November 2027 at 16:54 in ♒ Aquarius.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 20 October 2027 at 01:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.793°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.700° in the next southern standstill on 2 November 2027 at 01:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 14 November 2027 at 03:26 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
