Moon ♉ Taurus
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 13 April 2029 at 21:40 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2029 after 14 days on 28 April 2029 at 10:37.
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 21:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 362 of Meeus index or 1315 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 54 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 3 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠188.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠213.4°.
1 day after point of apogee on 12 April 2029 at 23:04 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 April 2029 at 16:24 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 405 439 km (251 928 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 829 km (222 345 mi).
8 days after ascending node on 5 April 2029 at 05:50 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 April 2029 at 21:27 in ♋ Cancer.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 3 April 2029 at 19:08 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.661°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.526° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 April 2029 at 10:56 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
