Crescent ♍ Virgo
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 11 August 2037 at 10:41 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 ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2037 after 14 days on 25 August 2037 at 19:09.
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 10:41 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 465 of Meeus index or 1418 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2037. It is 25 minutes shorter 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 5 hours shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠338.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠354.5°.
10 days after point of apogee on 31 July 2037 at 12:33 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 August 2037 at 17:37 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 366 423 km (227 685 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 796 km (223 567 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 10 August 2037 at 01:40 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 22 August 2037 at 23:10 in ♑ Capricorn.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 8 August 2037 at 21:01 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.369°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.390° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 August 2037 at 14:16 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
