Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 27 December 2027 at 20:12.
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 ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2028 after 10 days on 12 January 2028 at 04:03.
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 346 of Meeus index or 1299 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. It is 25 minutes 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 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠132.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠161.9°.
Moon is at apogee at 03:52. It is 16 days after previous perigee on 16 December 2027 at 02:21 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next perigee on 13 January 2028 at 07:47 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 405 633 km (252 049 mi) away from Earth. It is 225 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 076 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
2 days after ascending node on 30 December 2027 at 00:51 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 January 2028 at 21:27 in ♋ Cancer.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 26 December 2027 at 15:52 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.576°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.604° at the point of next northern standstill on 10 January 2028 at 02:36 in ♊ Gemini.
In 10 days on 12 January 2028 at 04:03 in ♋ Cancer 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.
