Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 21 November 2052 at 09:02 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2052 after 14 days on 6 December 2052 at 07:18.
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 09:02 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 654 of Meeus index or 1607 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 13 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2052. It is 16 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 6 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 34 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠165.7°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠190.2°.
13 days after point of perigee on 7 November 2052 at 21:03 in ♉ Taurus. 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 22 November 2052 at 23:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 404 825 km (251 547 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 619 km (252 661 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 16 November 2052 at 18:46 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 1 December 2052 at 09:24 in ♈ Aries.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 9 November 2052 at 18:39 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.287°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.363° at the point of next southern standstill on 23 November 2052 at 20:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
