New Moon in Sagittarius

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 27 November 2084 at 21:39 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 is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Cold Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2084 after 14 days on 12 December 2084 at 03:19.

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 ∠1926" and ∠1945".

New lunation 1050 / 2003

At 21:39 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1050 of Meeus index or lunation 2003 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.48 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes. It is 28 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decrease with the lunar orbit true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 53 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit details for

True anomaly ∠326.7°

The true anomaly of the Moon orbit is ∠326.7° and at the beginning of the next lunar synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠345.2°.

Moon before perigee

9 days since point of apogee on 18 November 2084 at 03:12 in ♌ Leo the lunar orbit is getting narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 November 2084 at 22:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 372 162 km

The Moon is 372 162 km (231 251 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 581 km (225 297 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 16 November 2084 at 13:34 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is positioned south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days until the lunar crosses the ecliptic again from South to North in ascending node on 30 November 2084 at 06:21 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days since the last northern standstill on 14 November 2084 at 17:16 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.920° the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-24.903° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 November 2084 at 18:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

24 days since the beginning of this draconic month in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is navigating from the second to the final 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.
