Crescent ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2007 after 15 days on 1 June 2007 at 01:04.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 19:27 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 91 of Meeus index or 1044 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 46 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2007. It is 1 hour and 5 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 4 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠19.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠38.7°.
1 day after point of perigee on 15 May 2007 at 15:10 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 27 May 2007 at 22:01 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 365 423 km (227 063 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 458 km (251 940 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 11 May 2007 at 23:08 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 May 2007 at 17:16 in ♍ Virgo.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
10 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 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.287° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 May 2007 at 23:04 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
