Crescent ♋ Cancer
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 15 June 2007 at 03:13 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1919" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2007 after 15 days on 30 June 2007 at 13:49.
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 03:13 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 92 of Meeus index or 1045 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 51 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 16 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠38.7°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠64.2°.
2 days after point of perigee on 12 June 2007 at 17:07 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 24 June 2007 at 14:25 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 373 573 km (232 128 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 540 km (251 370 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 8 June 2007 at 00:35 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 June 2007 at 19:32 in ♍ Virgo.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 08:31 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.212°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.215° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 29 June 2007 at 15:41.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
