* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 24 February 2047 at 18:26 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1803" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2047 after 15 days on 12 March 2047 at 01:37.
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 18:26 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 583 of Meeus index or 1536 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 18 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2047. It is 22 minutes longer 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 34 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 29 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠133°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠161.9°.
11 days after point of perigee on 13 February 2047 at 00:46 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 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 1 March 2047 at 00:38 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 397 575 km (247 042 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 695 km (252 087 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 21 February 2047 at 11:46 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 8 March 2047 at 01:12 in ♋ Cancer.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 18 February 2047 at 21:07 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.990°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.881° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 March 2047 at 11:00 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
