Crescent ♒ Aquarius
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 12 January 2032 at 20:07 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2032 after 15 days on 27 January 2032 at 12:52.
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 20:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 396 of Meeus index or 1349 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 18 minutes. It is 18 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 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 43 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠351.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠6.9°.
11 days after point of apogee on 31 December 2031 at 13:16 in ♌ Leo. 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 13 January 2032 at 07:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 364 375 km (226 412 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 088 km (221 884 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 8 January 2032 at 08:58 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 January 2032 at 20:00 in ♉ Taurus.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 10 January 2032 at 16:49 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.298°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.240° at the point of next northern standstill on 23 January 2032 at 14:33 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
