Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 9 November 2007 at 23:03.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1798"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1939".

Beaver Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2007 after 11 days on 24 November 2007 at 14:30.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 97 / 1050

The Moon is 3 days 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.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.78 days

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°).

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠183.8°

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°.

Moon after apogee

3 days 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 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 24 November 2007 at 00:12 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 398 574 km

The Moon is 398 574 km (247 662 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 196 km (221 951 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after descending node on 3 November 2007 at 22:09 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 November 2007 at 12:46 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 04:37 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.006°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠27.958° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 26 November 2007 at 03:58.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 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.
