Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1885" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2007 after 15 days on 30 July 2007 at 00:48.
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.

29 days, 10 hours and 59 minutes is the length of new lunation 93. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 94 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 24 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠64.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠97.3°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 9 July 2007 at 21:38 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 July 2007 at 08:43 in ♏ Scorpio.

1 day after previous North standstill on 12 July 2007 at 16:38 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.251°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.300° in the next southern standstill on 26 July 2007 at 23:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
