New Moon in Gemini

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

* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 11 June 2067 at 20:41 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 ∠17° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Strawberry Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2067 after 15 days on 27 June 2067 at 02:52.

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 ∠1805" and ∠1890".

New lunation 834 / 1787

At 20:41 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 834 of Meeus index or lunation 1787 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.61 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 35 minutes. It is 45 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increase with the lunar orbit true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 51 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 12 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit details for

True anomaly ∠132.6°

The true anomaly of the Moon orbit is ∠132.6° and at the beginning of the next lunar synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠159.9°.

Moon before apogee

11 days since point of perigee on 31 May 2067 at 07:21 in ♑ Capricorn 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 16 June 2067 at 03:04 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 396 996 km

The Moon is 396 996 km (246 682 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 510 km (251 972 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 19:56 crossing the ecliptic from North to South. Lunar position remains south of if for the upcoming 14 days until Moon's next ascending node later on 26 June 2067 at 02:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon at northern standstill

At 14:57 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠23.109°. Over the upcoming 14 days the lunar orbit is going to tilt southward to face maximum declination of ∠-23.109° at the point of next southern standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 25 June 2067 at 22:32.

Draconic month

12 days since the beginning of this draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last 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.
