New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 27 June 2014 at 08:09 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1786" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2014 after 14 days on 12 July 2014 at 11:25.
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 08:08 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 179 of Meeus index or 1132 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 33 minutes. It is 58 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 1 hour and 49 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠144.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠169.2°.
12 days after point of perigee on 15 June 2014 at 03:34 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 30 June 2014 at 19:09 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 401 283 km (249 346 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 932 km (252 234 mi).
5 days after descending node on 21 June 2014 at 20:30 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 July 2014 at 09:50 in ♎ Libra.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 26 June 2014 at 08:34 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.035°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.982° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 July 2014 at 17:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
