Moon ♊ Gemini
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 16 May 2083 at 18:14 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2083 after 14 days on 31 May 2083 at 09:42.
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 18:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1031 of Meeus index or 1984 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 24 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 23 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠180.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠203.8°.
Moon is at apogee at 17:26. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 2 May 2083 at 12:57 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 30 May 2083 at 23:07 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 406 663 km (252 689 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2083. It is 1 255 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 46 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
8 days after ascending node on 8 May 2083 at 08:03 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 22 May 2083 at 23:17 in ♌ Leo.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 4 May 2083 at 19:46 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.010°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.923° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 May 2083 at 00:24 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
