Crescent ♈ Aries
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 21 March 2061 at 17:23 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♈ Aries later.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1927" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2061 after 14 days on 4 April 2061 at 21:47.
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 17:23 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 757 of Meeus index or 1710 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 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 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 7 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠324.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠343.2°.
9 days after point of apogee on 12 March 2061 at 02:00 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 March 2061 at 21:11 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 371 892 km (231 083 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 081 km (225 608 mi).
12 days after descending node on 8 March 2061 at 23:14 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 March 2061 at 23:32 in ♈ Aries.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 15 March 2061 at 03:06 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.381°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.422° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 March 2061 at 01:47 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
