Crescent ♋ Cancer
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 2 July 2019 at 19:16 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1921" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2019 after 14 days on 16 July 2019 at 21:38.
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 19:16 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 241 of Meeus index or 1194 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 56 minutes. It is 31 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 4 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠321.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠340.5°.
9 days after point of apogee on 23 June 2019 at 07:50 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 5 July 2019 at 04:54 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 373 088 km (231 826 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 729 km (226 011 mi).
13 days after descending node on 19 June 2019 at 01:49 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 3 July 2019 at 06:53 in ♋ Cancer.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 22:02 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.379°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.375° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 15 July 2019 at 22:49.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
