Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1802" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2027 after 11 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 4 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°).
8 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 November 2027 at 11:37 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 397 696 km (247 117 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 183 km (251 148 mi).
10 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 November 2027 at 16:54 in ♒ Aquarius.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 01:17 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.700°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.619° in its northern standstill point on 16 November 2027 at 07:40 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 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.
