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 ∠13° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1890" and ∠1890".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 22 July 2007 at 08:43 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 August 2007 at 23:52 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 379 165 km (235 602 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 892 km (229 219 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 18 July 2007 at 00:18 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 August 2007 at 06:03 in ♓ Pisces.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 26 July 2007 at 23:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.300°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.342° in the next northern standstill on 8 August 2007 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
