Moon ♐ Sagittarius
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 10 December 2034 at 20:14 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2034 after 14 days on 25 December 2034 at 08:54.
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 20:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 432 of Meeus index or 1385 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 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 6 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 58 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠192.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠220.5°.
1 day after point of apogee on 9 December 2034 at 10:00 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 24 December 2034 at 10:34 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 405 163 km (251 757 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 118 km (222 524 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 3 December 2034 at 11:15 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 18 December 2034 at 02:21 in ♓ Pisces.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 27 November 2034 at 19:42 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.488°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-18.553° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 December 2034 at 00:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
