Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 30 June 2007 at 13:49.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1879" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2007 after 27 days on 30 July 2007 at 00:48.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
7 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 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 July 2007 at 21:38 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 381 544 km (237 080 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 534 km (228 996 mi).
11 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 July 2007 at 01:39 in ♓ Pisces.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 29 June 2007 at 15:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.215°. Next 10 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.
After 12 days on 14 July 2007 at 12:04 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
