Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 10 May 2007 at 04:27.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1943" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2007 after 20 days on 1 June 2007 at 01:04.
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.
The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 90 of Meeus index or 1043 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 51 minutes. It is 5 minutes longer 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 4 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠19.8°.
11 days after point of apogee on 30 April 2007 at 10:57 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 15 May 2007 at 15:10 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 368 983 km (229 275 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 393 km (223 316 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 23:08 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 24 May 2007 at 17:16 in ♍ Virgo.
At 23:08 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
5 days since the previous standstill on 6 May 2007 at 04:22 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.341°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.287° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 May 2007 at 23:04 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 days on 16 May 2007 at 19:27 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
