Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2007 after 15 days on 24 November 2007 at 14:30.
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 23:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 97 of Meeus index or 1050 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 37 minutes is the length of new lunation 97. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2007. It is 40 minutes longer than next lunation 98 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠183.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠209.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 12:31, this is 14 days after last perigee on 26 October 2007 at 11:51 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 24 November 2007 at 00:12 in ♊ Gemini.
This apogee Moon is 406 671 km (252 694 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2007. It is 1 263 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 38 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
5 days after its descending node on 3 November 2007 at 22:09 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 November 2007 at 12:46 in ♓ Pisces.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 29 October 2007 at 18:09 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.117°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.006° in the next southern standstill on 13 November 2007 at 04:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
