Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 9 November 2007 at 23:03.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1775"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1938".

Beaver Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2007 after 13 days on 24 November 2007 at 14:30.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 97 / 1050

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 97 of Meeus index or 1050 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.78 days

Length of current 97 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 37 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2007. It is 40 minutes longer than next lunation 98 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠183.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠183.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠209.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 9 November 2007 at 12:31 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 24 November 2007 at 00:12 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 786 km

Moon is 403 786 km (250 901 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 196 km (221 951 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 3 November 2007 at 22:09 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 November 2007 at 12:46 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 29 October 2007 at 18:09 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.117°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.006° in the next southern standstill on 13 November 2007 at 04:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 24 November 2007 at 14:30 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
