Crescent ♓ Pisces
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 13 February 2029 at 10:31 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1794" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2029 after 15 days on 28 February 2029 at 17:10.
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 10:31 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 360 of Meeus index or 1313 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 48 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2029. It is 27 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 4 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠136.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠164.5°.
11 days after point of perigee on 1 February 2029 at 12:21 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 17 February 2029 at 11:59 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 399 442 km (248 202 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 812 km (252 160 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 10 February 2029 at 03:07 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 February 2029 at 16:44 in ♋ Cancer.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 8 February 2029 at 06:14 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.127°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.019° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 February 2029 at 22:00 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
