Crescent ♑ Capricorn
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The less than 1 day young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 18 December 2093 at 07:47 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 14 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.
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 07:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1162 of Meeus index or 2115 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 18 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2093. It is 40 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 1 hour and 26 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 43 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠335.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠352.5°.
10 days after point of apogee on 7 December 2093 at 19:07 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 December 2093 at 18:42 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 367 132 km (228 125 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 323 km (223 894 mi).
12 days after ascending node on 5 December 2093 at 20:16 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 December 2093 at 15:25 in ♑ Capricorn.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
13 days since the previous standstill on 5 December 2093 at 10:39 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.462°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-22.474° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 December 2093 at 08:08 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
