Quarter* ♏ Scorpio
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 36% and growing larger. The 6 days young Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days 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 ∠10° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2007 after 8 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 6 days 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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 42 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 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 58 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 5 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠97.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠131.4°.
Moon is at apogee at 03:28. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 3 August 2007 at 23:52 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next perigee on 31 August 2007 at 00:12 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 404 621 km (251 420 mi) away from Earth. It is 787 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 088 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
5 days after descending node on 14 August 2007 at 07:25 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 August 2007 at 14:27 in ♒ Aquarius.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 8 August 2007 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.342°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.377° at the point of next southern standstill on 23 August 2007 at 08:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 8 days on 28 August 2007 at 10:35 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
