Moon ♐ Sagittarius
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 27 November 2046 at 21:50 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1939" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2046 after 15 days on 13 December 2046 at 09:55.
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 21:50 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 580 of Meeus index or 1533 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 49 minutes. It is 2 hours and 16 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 5 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 58 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠35.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠60.8°.
1 day after point of perigee on 25 November 2046 at 18:09 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 7 December 2046 at 12:36 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 369 649 km (229 689 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 833 km (251 552 mi).
8 days after descending node on 18 November 2046 at 21:00 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 1 December 2046 at 12:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 16 November 2046 at 01:54 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.076°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-26.048° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 November 2046 at 22:56 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
