Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 81% and growing larger. The 10 days young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 19 October 2007 at 08:33.
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 ∠8° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1918" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2007 after 3 days on 26 October 2007 at 04:52.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 96 of Meeus index or 1049 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 2 minutes. It is 35 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠159.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠183.8°.
9 days after point of apogee on 13 October 2007 at 09:53 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 26 October 2007 at 11:51 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 373 664 km (232 184 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 755 km (221 677 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 09:02 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 3 November 2007 at 22:09 in ♌ Leo.
At 09:02 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
5 days since the previous standstill on 16 October 2007 at 23:14 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.194°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.117° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 October 2007 at 18:09 in ♊ Gemini.
In 3 days on 26 October 2007 at 04:52 in ♉ Taurus 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.
