Crescent ♑ Capricorn
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 19 December 2082 at 15:11 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 ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1941" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2083 after 15 days on 4 January 2083 at 02:32.
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 15:11 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1026 of Meeus index or 1979 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 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 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 4 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠31°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠55.2°.
1 day after point of perigee on 17 December 2082 at 18:03 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 29 December 2082 at 13:39 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 369 356 km (229 507 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 040 km (251 680 mi).
8 days after descending node on 10 December 2082 at 14:39 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 23 December 2082 at 05:41 in ♒ Aquarius.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 08:21 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-27.412°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2082. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠27.424° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 2 January 2083 at 11:49.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
