Moon ♋ Cancer
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 30 June 2030 at 21:34 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2030 after 14 days on 15 July 2030 at 02:12.
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 21:34 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 377 of Meeus index or 1330 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 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 52 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 10 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠213.7°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠244.5°.
2 days after point of apogee on 27 June 2030 at 14:14 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 July 2030 at 05:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 402 356 km (250 012 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 792 km (224 807 mi).
1 day after descending node on 28 June 2030 at 23:50 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 July 2030 at 14:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 29 June 2030 at 02:45 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.734°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.706° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 July 2030 at 17:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
