Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 9 November 2007 at 23:03 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2007 after 14 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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 37 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2007. It is 40 minutes longer 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 53 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠183.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠209.6°.
1 day after point of apogee on 9 November 2007 at 12:31 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 24 November 2007 at 00:12 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 405 104 km (251 720 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 196 km (221 951 mi).
6 days after descending node on 3 November 2007 at 22:09 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 November 2007 at 12:46 in ♓ Pisces.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 29 October 2007 at 18:09 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.117°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.006° at the point of next southern standstill on 13 November 2007 at 04:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
