Crescent ♈ Aries
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 20 March 2034 at 10:14 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2034 after 14 days on 3 April 2034 at 19:19.
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 10:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 423 of Meeus index or 1376 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 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 3 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠337.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠353.9°.
10 days after point of apogee on 9 March 2034 at 16:05 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 21 March 2034 at 18:12 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 366 720 km (227 869 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 963 km (223 671 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 15:22 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 2 April 2034 at 21:12 in ♍ Virgo.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 13 March 2034 at 19:10 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.147°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.139° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 March 2034 at 12:34 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
