Quarter* ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 24 November 2007 at 14:30.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1852" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2007 after 23 days on 24 December 2007 at 01:16.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
6 days after point of perigee on 24 November 2007 at 00:12 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 December 2007 at 16:54 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 387 045 km (240 499 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 235 km (252 423 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 23:09 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 15 days later on 15 December 2007 at 13:15 in ♒ Aquarius.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 26 November 2007 at 03:58 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.958°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.906° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 December 2007 at 09:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 9 days on 9 December 2007 at 17:40 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
