Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1939" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2007 after 16 days on 30 June 2007 at 13:49.
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.
29 days, 7 hours and 46 minutes is the length of new lunation 91. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2007. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter than next lunation 92 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠19.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠38.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
1 day after point of perigee on 12 June 2007 at 17:07 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 June 2007 at 14:25 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 369 600 km (229 659 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 540 km (251 370 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 8 June 2007 at 00:35 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 June 2007 at 19:32 in ♍ Virgo.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 2 June 2007 at 09:31 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.219°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.212° in the next northern standstill on 15 June 2007 at 08:31 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
