Crescent ♒ Aquarius
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 15 January 2067 at 11:17 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2067 after 14 days on 30 January 2067 at 10:29.
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 11:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 829 of Meeus index or 1782 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 40 minutes. It is 9 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 2 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 5 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠2.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠18.4°.
Moon is at perigee at 07:56. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 1 January 2067 at 14:49 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 28 January 2067 at 14:45 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 356 756 km (221 678 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2067. It is 5 752 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 331 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 13 January 2067 at 18:46 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 26 January 2067 at 22:59 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 13 January 2067 at 00:58 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.918°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.887° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 January 2067 at 00:50 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
