Gibbous ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 17 November 2007 at 22:32.
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 ∠16° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1927" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2007 after 5 days on 24 November 2007 at 14:30.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°.
9 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 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 24 November 2007 at 00:12 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 372 033 km (231 171 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 196 km (221 951 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 18 November 2007 at 12:46 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 30 November 2007 at 23:09 in ♌ Leo.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 13 November 2007 at 04:37 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.006°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.958° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 November 2007 at 03:58 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 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.
