Crescent ♎ Libra
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♎ Libra.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 7 October 2029 at 19:14 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 ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2029 after 14 days on 22 October 2029 at 09:28.
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 19:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 368 of Meeus index or 1321 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes shorter 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 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 35 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠3.8°.
11 days after point of apogee on 25 September 2029 at 19:40 in ♉ Taurus. 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 8 October 2029 at 11:26 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 364 913 km (226 746 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 740 km (222 289 mi).
7 days after descending node on 30 September 2029 at 04:00 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 October 2029 at 17:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 29 September 2029 at 06:54 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.869°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.772° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 October 2029 at 01:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
