Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 14 July 2007 at 12:04.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1861" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2007 after 14 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 93 of Meeus index or 1046 from Brown series.
Length of current 93 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 59 minutes. 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°).
5 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 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 July 2007 at 08:43 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 385 075 km (239 275 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 152 km (251 128 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 5 July 2007 at 01:39 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 July 2007 at 00:18 in ♍ Virgo.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 12 July 2007 at 16:38 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.251°. Next 11 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.
After 14 days on 30 July 2007 at 00:48 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
