* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 2 November 2070 at 22:42 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1804" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2070 after 15 days on 18 November 2070 at 05:40.
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 22:43 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 876 of Meeus index or 1829 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter 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 5 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠134.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠163.2°.
11 days after point of perigee on 22 October 2070 at 03:04 in ♊ Gemini. 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 7 November 2070 at 02:03 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 397 376 km (246 918 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 849 km (252 183 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 31 October 2070 at 23:32 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 November 2070 at 11:41 in ♈ Aries.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 23 October 2070 at 19:48 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.400°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.443° at the point of next southern standstill on 6 November 2070 at 16:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
