Crescent ♍ Virgo
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 21 August 2036 at 17:35 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2036 after 15 days on 5 September 2036 at 18:45.
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 17:35 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 453 of Meeus index or 1406 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 42 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 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠9.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠25.8°.
Moon is at perigee at 04:27. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 6 August 2036 at 19:59 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 3 September 2036 at 00:30 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 819 km (222 338 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 689 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 537 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 20 August 2036 at 22:29 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 3 September 2036 at 12:59 in ♒ Aquarius.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 18 August 2036 at 10:50 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.867°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.884° at the point of next southern standstill on 31 August 2036 at 09:33 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
