Moon* ♊ Gemini
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 1 June 2087 at 01:38 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2087 after 15 days on 16 June 2087 at 06:58.
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 17:51 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1080 of Meeus index or 2033 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 48 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2087. It is 4 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 4 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠3.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠19°.
1 day after point of perigee on 30 May 2087 at 22:29 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 12 June 2087 at 06:07 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 364 679 km (226 601 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 422 km (251 918 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 00:23 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 13 June 2087 at 18:16 in ♏ Scorpio.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 19 May 2087 at 11:07 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.798°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠20.809° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 June 2087 at 14:09 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
