Crescent ♓ Pisces
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 1 March 2033 at 08:23 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2033 after 14 days on 16 March 2033 at 01:37.
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 08:23 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 410 of Meeus index or 1363 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 28 minutes. It is 33 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 3 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 53 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠353°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠8.3°.
Moon is at perigee at 18:17. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 16 February 2033 at 19:57 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 15 March 2033 at 22:00 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 357 180 km (221 941 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 328 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 176 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after ascending node on 19 February 2033 at 01:22 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 4 March 2033 at 01:01 in ♈ Aries.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 24 February 2033 at 01:02 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.763°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.688° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 March 2033 at 13:21 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
