Gibbous ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 30 July 2007 at 00:48.
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 about ∠9° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2007 after 24 days on 28 August 2007 at 10:35.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 93 of Meeus index or 1046 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 59 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 24 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠64.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠97.3°.
Moon is at perigee at 23:52. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 22 July 2007 at 08:43 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 19 August 2007 at 03:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 368 892 km (229 219 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2007. It is 6 384 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 464 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after ascending node on 1 August 2007 at 06:03 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 14 August 2007 at 07:25 in ♍ Virgo.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 26 July 2007 at 23:22 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.300°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.342° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 August 2007 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini.
In 9 days on 12 August 2007 at 23:03 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
