Crescent ♑ Capricorn
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 9 January 2035 at 15:03 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2035 after 14 days on 23 January 2035 at 20:16.
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 15:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 433 of Meeus index or 1386 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 32 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 4 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠220.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠255.7°.
3 days after point of apogee on 5 January 2035 at 18:52 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 January 2035 at 18:05 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 400 375 km (248 781 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 707 km (225 376 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 30 December 2034 at 13:10 in ♍ Virgo. 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 14 January 2035 at 03:01 in ♓ Pisces.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 8 January 2035 at 08:12 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.547°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.494° at the point of next northern standstill on 21 January 2035 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
