August 27, 2021: The bright moon is near Aries in the morning sky. Look for Venus and Mercury shortly after sunset.
by Jeffrey L. Hunt
Chicago, Illinois: Sunrise, 6:12 a.m. CDT; Sunset, 7:32 p.m. CDT. Check local sources for sunrise and sunset times for your location.
Before sunrise, the bright gibbous moon is high in the south-southwestern sky. It is among the stars of Pisces, to the lower right of the trio of stars that make Aries. They are Hamal, Sheratan, and Mesartim. The stellar triad easily fits into the same binocular field of view.
The brightest star is Hamal – “the full-grown lamb.” The star is nearly 10° north of the ecliptic, the plane of the solar system. Its distance is about 70 light years, shining with a brightness of about 100 suns.
The star appears to have a planet revolving around it. Known as Alpha Arietis b, the world is thought to be a gas planet like Jupiter, although the exoplanet has 1.8 times more matter and a diameter that is 1.2 times larger than our solar system’s largest planet. It revolves around the star in a little over one Earth-year.
As of this writing Alpha Arietis b is one of more than 4,400 known exoplanets listed on NASA’s web site.
Hamal is a yellow-orange star, similar to that of brighter Aldebaran, visible to the lower left of the Pleiades star cluster this morning. Hamal’s color is easier to see in a binocular than to the unaided eye.
Sheratan – “the two signs” – is nearly 4° to the lower right of Hamal. The star is around 60 light years away. It is about 50 times brighter than our sun. Its color is different from Hamal. Sheratan is a blue-white star.
The third star in the triangle is Mesartim – “the extremely fat ram.” It is the farthest and hottest star of this triad, about 200 light years away. It is over 100 times brighter than our sun.
Mesartim is a double star that was first observed through a telescope during the 17th century.
The moon is approaching the Pleiades and the constellation Taurus. Notice the change during the next few mornings.
This evening brilliant Venus shines from the western sky after sunset. Mercury is heading toward a greatest elongation from the sun next month, but this appearance of the speedy planet is dismal. It is over 17° to the lower right of the brilliant Evening Star.
About 25 minutes after sunset, Mercury is about 4° up in the west. At this level of twilight, a binocular is needed to see it.
As the sky darkens further, Venus, and Jupiter and Saturn – in the southeast – are visible at the same time. This trio of bright planets is visible at the same time during the evening until early 2022.
Detailed Daily Note:One hour before sunrise, the moon (18.8d, 76%) is nearly two-thirds of the way up in the sky above the south-southwest horizon. The lunar orb is 14.1° to the lower right of Hamal. Farther west, Jupiter is 4.0° up in the west-southwest. Twenty-five minutes after sunset, Mercury (m = −0.1), over 4° up in the west, is 17.1° to the lower right of Venus. Use a binocular to see them. Mercury’s brightness continues to dim as it reaches out to its greatest evening elongation next month. Forty-five minutes after sunset, brilliant Venus is about 8° up in the west-southwest, 4.4° to the lower left of Porrima and 10.3° to the lower right of Spica. The planet continues to move eastward about 1.2° of ecliptic longitude from evening to evening. Farther eastward, Saturn, over 17° up in the southeast, is 17.8° to the upper right of Jupiter. The Jovian Giant is nearly 11° above the east-southeast horizon. As midnight approaches, the moon (19.6d, 69%) is 15.0° above the eastern horizon and 18.8° to the upper right of Alcyone, the brightest star in the Pleiades star cluster. Farther westward, Jupiter, over one third of the way up in the south and east of the meridian, is 2.9° to the upper right of ι Aqr, 0.5° to the lower left of μ Cap and 2.7° to the upper left of Deneb Algedi. Saturn, less than one-third of the way up in the south and west of the meridian, is 1.1° to the lower left of υ Cap. Both giant planets continue to retrograde in front of the stars of Capricornus.

Moon Phase for Monday August 27th, 2959
The Moon phase for August 27th, 2959 is a Waning Crescent phase. This is the phase where the moon is less than 50% illuminated but has not yet reached 0% illumination (which would be a New Moon).
In this part of the moon cycle, it is getting closer and closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing earth with a decreasingly thin crescent being illuminated.
The waning (shrinking) crescement Moon will rise at around midnight, transit the meridian after sunrise, before setting after noon. This phase is best viewed 1-2 hours before sunrise and is a great time to see the features of the Moon's surface. Along the illuminated crescent you can see the craters and mountains of the moon casting long shadows.
The Waxing Gibbous phase, like all moon phases, will last for just over 7 days. The actual length will vary because of the elliptical shaped orbit of the moon. During this Waxing Gibbous phase the moon will rise in the east in the mid- to late-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset.
Assuming it's a clear night, the Waxing Gibbous moon will then be visible through most of the night before setting just before sunrise.
Fun fact: the illuminated side of a waning crescent moon is always pointed eastwards, towards the sunrise.
Moon Phase Details - Aug 27th, 2959
Phase: Waning Crescent
Moon age: 2.07 days
Moon illumination: 4.84%
Moon tilt: -136.385°
Moon angle: 0.53
Moon distance: 377,188.24 km
Moon sign: Virgo

August full moon 2021: The 'Sturgeon Moon' swings by Jupiter this weekend
The full moon of August arrives Sunday (Aug. 22), after it makes a close pass to Jupiter.
The moon will officially become full at 8:02 a.m. EDT (1202 GMT), according to NASA. For New York City observers, the just-past-full moon will rise at 8:20 p.m. local time, or about 40 minutes after sunset that day.
A full moon happens when the moon is exactly on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun — if you measured the angle across the sky from the sun to the moon it would be 180 degrees. If the moon passes through the Earth's shadow we see a lunar eclipse, but that doesn't happen each month because the moon's orbit is inclined about 5 degrees to the plane of the Earth's orbit, so the moon often "misses" the shadow.

On Aug. 22, just after midnight, the almost-full moon will appear close to Jupiter, passing within about seven lunar diameters of the planet, or 3 degrees and 44 arcminutes, according to the skywatching site In-the-Sky.org. The two bodies will be in conjunction — sharing the same celestial longitude — at 12:56 a.m. EDT (. Both will be in Capricornus, a faint constellation that makes Jupiter that much easier to identify; at the moment of conjunction Jupiter will appear above and slightly to the left (east) of the moon. The moon will be to the south, nearing its maximum altitude of about 31 degrees above the horizon. The moon becomes officially full some hours later, but it will have already set by that point (moonset is at 6:01 a.m. in New York City).
As one moves south, the conjunction will appear higher in the sky; from Miami the conjunction will be about 46 degrees above the horizon. In the Southern Hemisphere the nights are longer (as it is winter there) and the moon will appear correspondingly higher still. From Buenos Aires, the full moon occurs at 9:01 a.m. on Aug. 22, and rises the evening of Aug. 21 at 5:36 p.m. local time. The conjunction will be at 1:56 a.m. on August 22 and the pair will be about 69 degrees high at 12:42 a.m.
On the night of the full moon, Venus, Mercury and Mars will all be "evening stars." The three planets respectively rise at 9:28 a.m., 7:51 a.m. and 7:33 a.m. Eastern Time on Aug. 22 in New York, according to Heavens-Above.com calculations.
But only Venus will be readily observable; by 8 p.m. Mars will be no more than 4 degrees above the western horizon, and Mercury only at about 5 degrees high in New York. That makes them very challenging to see, and both planets will have set by 8:30 p.m. Venus, however, is bright enough that it will stand out against even a still-light sky just after sunset. At an altitude of about 13 degrees by 8 p.m., the planet does not set until 9:13 p.m.
Other planets will be rising — Jupiter will be near the moon, just rising in the east after sunset. Saturn will rise at 6:43 p.m. local time in New York City and be in Capricornus. At the time the moon rises it will be about 15 degrees above the southeastern horizon, with Jupiter to its left.
Stars and constellations
Although the full moon tends to overwhelm the fainter stars, asterisms such as the Summer Triangle — which consists of the stars Vega, Deneb and Altair — will be prominent and easily spotted, high in the east-southeast. About an hour and a half after sunset in the Northern Hemisphere, you can look nearly straight up to find Vega, which, at mid-northern latitudes, is at an altitude of between 80 and 88 degrees (depending on how far north or south you are in the lower 48 states).
By about 9:30 p.m. local time in mid-northern latitudes the constellation Scorpius, the scorpion is visible in the south-southwest. Scorpius can be spotted by looking for Antares, a bright reddish star that marks the heart of the scorpion. To the left of Scorpius is the constellation Sagittarius, the archer, with its distinctive teapot shape, and above Scorpius is Ophiuchus, the snake handler and healer.
Ursa Major, the Great Bear, will be in the northwest after sunset and as one follows the "pointers" — the two stars in the front of the Big Dipper's bowl — to Polaris, one can keep going and hit the W-shaped constellation Cassiopeia. Using the handle of the Dipper, one can "Arc to Arcturus" by sweeping along the handle until you hit the eponymous star in Boötes, the herdsman.
In the Southern Hemisphere, the sky is "upside down" and by 9 p.m. local time on Aug. 22 at the latitude of Cape Town or Melbourne one will see the full moon, Jupiter and Saturn forming a rough vertical line in the east, with the moon at the bottom and Saturn at the top. Just west of them, to the right, one will see Piscis Austrinus, the Southern Fish, and the bright star Fomalhaut, which is known for being relatively close — only 25 light years distant and the first star to have an exoplanet seen in visible light. As one turns south one sees Achernar, the brightest star in Eridanus the river. High in the southwest one can see the Southern Cross and just above it the Centaur, home to Alpha Centauri.
How the Sturgeon Moon got its name
The full moon of August, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, is sometimes known as the Sturgeon Moon. The name likely came from both colonists and Algonquian-speaking peoples in northeastern North America, as sturgeon (a type of fish) are native to both Europe and the Americas.
Not all Native nations in the region used the term. The Ojibwe, whose traditional territory is near the Great Lakes, referred to the eighth full moon of the year as the Blackberry Moon, which could also occur in July. The Cree of Ontario called the August full moon the Flying Up Moon because it was when young birds would fledge. In the Pacific Northwest, the Haida called it the Salmon Moon ("chíin kungáay"), according to Dolly Garza's book "Tlingit Moon & Tide."

In China and many surrounding countries, the August full moon marks the Hungry Ghost Festival. The Chinese calendar is lunisolar, and strictly speaking the August full moon falls in the seventh month, Qiǎoyuè, or Skill Month. It is also called Ghost Month. The festival is to honor spirits who were not given proper funerals or offerings when they died. People light paper lanterns and burn paper versions of earthly possessions or (fake) money to honor the departed.
The Māori counted lunar months from new moon to new moon, so the August full moon is halfway through the month of Mahuru, which is towards the latter part of the austral winter. The month is described as "The Earth has now acquired warmth."
In South Africa, the Zulu call the first full month of the year uNcwaba (the small c marks a clicking sound in Zulu), and the name is derived from describing a man who has made "a new appearance" after a long journey when he washes and anoints himself with fat; in a similar vein the Earth puts on a new appearance in spring.

Why is there a full Moon in the middle of the day?
Some of the times included in the table show full moons happening in the middle of the day. How can this be?
While you can often see the Moon even during the day, it may at first seem odd to think of a full Moon occurring during daylight hours. However, there is a straightforward explanation.
The reason this happens is that the time refers to the exact moment when the Sun and Moon are aligned on opposite sides of the Earth. This moment is known as the 'syzygy' of the Sun-Earth-Moon system, and can happen at any time day or night.
The Moon will still look full either on the night before or the evening after the exact moment of 'full Moon'.
When is the next lunar eclipse?
What is a Supermoon?
The distance between the Moon and the Earth varies, because the Earth is not right at the centre of the Moon’s orbit and the Moon’s orbit is not a circle (it’s an ellipse).
The moment when the Moon is closest to the Earth is called a lunar perigee. When the Moon is furthest away it is known as a lunar apogee.
If the lunar perigee occurs very close to a full Moon, then we see what is known as a Supermoon. If a lunar apogee occurs very close to a full Moon then we see a Micromoon.
