Moon* ♊ Gemini
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 27 May 2025 at 03:02 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2025 after 15 days on 11 June 2025 at 07:44.
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 19:31 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 313 of Meeus index or 1266 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 31 minutes. It is 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 5 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 56 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠2.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠17.8°.
Moon is at perigee at 01:37. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 11 May 2025 at 00:49 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 7 June 2025 at 10:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 359 023 km (223 087 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 485 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 333 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after ascending node on 22 May 2025 at 08:05 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 4 June 2025 at 01:33 in ♍ Virgo.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 15 May 2025 at 18:44 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.484°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.442° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 May 2025 at 16:16 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
