Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 24% and growing larger. The 5 days young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 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.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1788" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2027 after 10 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 5 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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 48 minutes. It is 3 hours 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 4 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠61.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠96°.
9 days after point of perigee on 25 October 2027 at 05:36 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 November 2027 at 11:37 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 400 990 km (249 164 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 183 km (251 148 mi).
11 days after descending node on 23 October 2027 at 08:15 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 5 November 2027 at 16:54 in ♒ Aquarius.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 2 November 2027 at 01:17 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.700°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.619° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 November 2027 at 07:40 in ♊ Gemini.
In 10 days on 14 November 2027 at 03:26 in ♉ Taurus 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.
