Crescent ♋ 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 22 June 2028 at 18:27 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2028 after 14 days on 6 July 2028 at 18:11.
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 18:27 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 352 of Meeus index or 1305 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 34 minutes. It is 52 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 10 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠308.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠330.4°.
8 days after point of apogee on 14 June 2028 at 04:46 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 26 June 2028 at 04:14 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 377 478 km (234 554 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 533 km (227 753 mi).
12 days after ascending node on 10 June 2028 at 02:18 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 June 2028 at 06:42 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 21 June 2028 at 22:15 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.920°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.933° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 July 2028 at 18:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
