Crescent ♏ Scorpio
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♎ Libra.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 4 October 2089 at 01:15 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1918" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2089 after 15 days on 19 October 2089 at 13:04.
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 01:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1110 of Meeus index or 2063 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 hours and 37 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 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 5 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠38.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠64.1°.
2 days after point of perigee on 1 October 2089 at 16:29 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 October 2089 at 11:47 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 373 758 km (232 242 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 603 km (251 409 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 3 October 2089 at 21:22 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 18 October 2089 at 03:46 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.
7 days since the previous standstill on 26 September 2089 at 20:57 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.219°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.220° at the point of next southern standstill on 9 October 2089 at 17:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
