Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1833" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2007.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 92 of Meeus index or 1045 from Brown series.
Length of current 92 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 51 minutes. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 24 June 2007 at 14:25 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 July 2007 at 21:38 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 390 971 km (242 938 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 534 km (228 996 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 20 June 2007 at 19:32 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 July 2007 at 01:39 in ♓ Pisces.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 29 June 2007 at 15:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.215°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.251° in the next northern standstill on 12 July 2007 at 16:38 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
