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 29 December 2035 at 14:31 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2036 after 14 days on 13 January 2036 at 11:16.
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 14:31 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 445 of Meeus index or 1398 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 46 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2035. It is 1 hour and 4 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 7 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 minute shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠171°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠195.6°.
13 days after point of perigee on 15 December 2035 at 19:38 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 30 December 2035 at 15:44 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 405 042 km (251 681 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 575 km (252 634 mi).
10 days after ascending node on 19 December 2035 at 09:33 in ♌ Leo. 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 2 January 2036 at 18:21 in ♒ Aquarius.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 15:02 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-19.326°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2035. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠19.295° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 12 January 2036 at 12:23.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
