Moon* ♋ Cancer
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 21 June 2020 at 06:41 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1825" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2020 after 14 days on 5 July 2020 at 04:44.
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 17:39 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 252 of Meeus index or 1205 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 3 minutes. It is 2 hours and 11 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 19 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 44 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠229.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠263.8°.
5 days after point of apogee on 15 June 2020 at 00:56 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 June 2020 at 02:09 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 392 675 km (243 997 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 958 km (229 260 mi).
13 days after descending node on 6 June 2020 at 18:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 21 June 2020 at 04:24 in ♊ Gemini.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 7 June 2020 at 16:22 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.069°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠24.070° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 June 2020 at 03:56 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
