Moon ♑ Capricorn
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 26 December 2095 at 18:24 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 ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1823" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2096 after 14 days on 9 January 2096 at 19:20.
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 18:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1187 of Meeus index or 2140 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. It is 2 hours and 36 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 36 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠255°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠291.7°.
5 days after point of apogee on 20 December 2095 at 23:26 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 5 January 2096 at 18:18 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 393 097 km (244 259 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 290 km (228 845 mi).
1 day after descending node on 24 December 2095 at 17:49 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 January 2096 at 23:04 in ♊ Gemini.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
13 days since the previous standstill on 12 December 2095 at 17:11 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.653°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-25.640° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 December 2095 at 03:42 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
