Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 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 ∠7° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2027 after 24 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 20 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 00:10, this is 12 days after last apogee on 6 November 2027 at 11:37 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 4 December 2027 at 08:42 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 369 356 km (229 507 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 848 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 000 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 08:34 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 2 December 2027 at 19:38 in ♑ Capricorn.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 16 November 2027 at 07:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.619°. Next 9 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 8 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.
