Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 9 November 2007 at 23:03.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2007 after 13 days on 24 November 2007 at 14:30.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠183.8°. At the beginning of 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 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 24 November 2007 at 00:12 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 403 786 km (250 901 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 196 km (221 951 mi).
7 days after descending node on 3 November 2007 at 22:09 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 November 2007 at 12:46 in ♓ Pisces.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠-28.006° at the point of next southern standstill on 13 November 2007 at 04:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 24 November 2007 at 14:30 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.
