Crescent ♈ Aries
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 29 March 2025 at 10:58 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2025 after 14 days on 13 April 2025 at 00:22.
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 10:58 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 312 of Meeus index or 1265 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer 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 4 hours and 11 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠346.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠2.3°.
11 days after point of apogee on 17 March 2025 at 16:37 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 30 March 2025 at 05:26 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 364 552 km (226 522 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 127 km (222 530 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 28 March 2025 at 16:29 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 10 April 2025 at 19:56 in ♍ Virgo.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 22 March 2025 at 06:47 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.719°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.696° at the point of next northern standstill on 3 April 2025 at 22:15 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
