Crescent ♑ Capricorn
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 2 December 2032 at 20:53 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1883" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2032 after 13 days on 16 December 2032 at 20:49.
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 20:53 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 407 of Meeus index or 1360 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 24 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 40 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 23 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠286.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠315.8°.
7 days after point of apogee on 25 November 2032 at 14:16 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 8 December 2032 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 380 738 km (236 580 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 105 km (229 973 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 29 November 2032 at 16:30 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 December 2032 at 17:34 in ♈ Aries.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 17:02 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-19.128°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠19.141° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 16 December 2032 at 16:10.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
