Crescent ♎ Libra
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 11 September 2007 at 12:44 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1801" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2007 after 15 days on 26 September 2007 at 19:45.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 12:44 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 95 of Meeus index or 1048 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 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 3 hours and 32 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠131.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠159.5°.
11 days after point of perigee on 31 August 2007 at 00:12 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 15 September 2007 at 21:06 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 397 926 km (247 260 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 645 km (252 056 mi).
1 day after descending node on 10 September 2007 at 14:49 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 25 September 2007 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 5 September 2007 at 04:28 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.380°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.347° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 September 2007 at 16:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
