Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 14 November 2027 at 03:26.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1949" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2027 after 26 days on 13 December 2027 at 16:09.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 6 November 2027 at 11:37 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2027 at 00:10 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 367 682 km (228 467 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 356 km (229 507 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 5 November 2027 at 16:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 November 2027 at 08:34 in ♌ Leo.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 16 November 2027 at 07:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.619°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.574° in the next southern standstill on 29 November 2027 at 09:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 10 days on 28 November 2027 at 03:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
