Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 12 August 2007 at 23:03.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1810" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2007 after 13 days on 28 August 2007 at 10:35.
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 94 of Meeus index or 1047 from Brown series.
Length of current 94 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 42 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 95 length.
Length of current synodic month is 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠97.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠131.4°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 3 August 2007 at 23:52 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 August 2007 at 03:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 396 102 km (246 126 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 621 km (251 420 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 07:25 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 28 August 2007 at 14:27 in ♒ Aquarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2007 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.342°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.377° in the next southern standstill on 23 August 2007 at 08:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 28 August 2007 at 10:35 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
