Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1919" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2007 after 15 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 03:13 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 92 of Meeus index or 1045 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 51 minutes is the length of new lunation 92. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 93 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 16 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠38.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠64.2°. 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°).
2 days 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 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 June 2007 at 14:25 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 373 573 km (232 128 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 540 km (251 370 mi).
7 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 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 June 2007 at 19:32 in ♍ Virgo.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 08:31 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.212°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.215° in its southern standstill point on 29 June 2007 at 15:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
