New Moon in Gemini

New Moon on . Illuminated surface of the Moon is 0%. Lunar cycle is less than 1 day young.

* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 4 June 2065 at 03:05 UTC.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Upcoming main moon phases

Main moon phases of the following lunar cycle.

Moon phase and lunation details

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Strawberry Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2065 after 13 days on 18 June 2065 at 09:28.

Spring tide

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.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1891".

New lunation 809 / 1762

At 03:04 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 809 of Meeus index or lunation 1762 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.59 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decrease with the lunar orbit true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 27 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 36 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit details for

True anomaly ∠206.9°

The true anomaly of the Moon orbit is ∠206.9° and at the beginning of the next lunar synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠235.9°.

Moon after apogee

3 days since point of apogee on 1 June 2065 at 09:08 in ♉ Taurus the lunar orbit is getting narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 June 2065 at 20:01 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 401 847 km

The Moon is 401 847 km (249 696 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 552 km (224 037 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 24 May 2065 at 02:55 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is positioned north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days until the lunar crosses the ecliptic again from North to South in descending node on 7 June 2065 at 16:41 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon at northern standstill

At 16:59 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠26.155°. Over the upcoming 13 days the lunar orbit is going to tilt southward to face maximum declination of ∠-26.172° at the point of next southern standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 17 June 2065 at 22:40.

Draconic month

11 days since the beginning of this draconic month in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the lunar cycle.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
