Crescent ♓ Pisces
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 17 February 2007 at 16:14 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1940" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2007 after 14 days on 3 March 2007 at 23:17.
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 16:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 88 of Meeus index or 1041 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 35 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 2 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 53 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠331.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠348.7°.
9 days after point of apogee on 7 February 2007 at 12:39 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 February 2007 at 09:34 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 369 556 km (229 631 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 440 km (224 588 mi).
12 days after descending node on 4 February 2007 at 22:44 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 February 2007 at 20:43 in ♓ Pisces.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 13 February 2007 at 07:33 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.568°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.600° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 February 2007 at 23:35 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
