Crescent ♌ Leo
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 15 July 2034 at 18:15 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 ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1920" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2034 after 15 days on 31 July 2034 at 05:54.
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 18:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 427 of Meeus index or 1380 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 38 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter 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 6 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 3 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠45.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠73.9°.
2 days after point of perigee on 12 July 2034 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 24 July 2034 at 17:20 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 373 264 km (231 935 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 334 km (251 241 mi).
7 days after descending node on 7 July 2034 at 14:33 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 20 July 2034 at 09:54 in ♍ Virgo.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 14 July 2034 at 05:13 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.385°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.336° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 July 2034 at 08:38 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
