Crescent ♒ Aquarius
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 20 January 2034 at 10:02 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1874" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2034 after 13 days on 3 February 2034 at 10:05.
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 10:01 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 421 of Meeus index or 1374 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 9 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 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 25 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 38 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠289°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠317.3°.
7 days after point of apogee on 13 January 2034 at 00:22 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 25 January 2034 at 21:19 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 382 429 km (237 630 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 926 km (229 861 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 11 January 2034 at 04:21 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 25 January 2034 at 00:56 in ♈ Aries.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 17 January 2034 at 23:58 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.413°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.344° at the point of next northern standstill on 31 January 2034 at 00:32 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
