Moon* ♓ Pisces
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 97% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 19 September 2007 at 16:48.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1932" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2007 after 1 day on 26 September 2007 at 19:45.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠131.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠159.5°.
9 days after point of apogee on 15 September 2007 at 21:06 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 28 September 2007 at 01:53 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 371 033 km (230 549 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 420 km (223 333 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 00:40 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 7 October 2007 at 20:03 in ♍ Virgo.
At 00:40 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
5 days since the previous standstill on 19 September 2007 at 16:22 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.347°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.296° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 October 2007 at 10:23 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 26 September 2007 at 19:45 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.
