New Moon April 2024

Moon Phase for Monday Apr 8th, 2024

The current moon phase for April 8th, 2024 is the New Moon phase.

On this day, the moon is -0.42 days old and 0.5% illuminated with a tilt of -296.922°. The approximate distance from Earth to the moon is 359,052.36 km and the moon sign is Aries.

The Moon phase for April 8th, 2024 is the New Moon phase. In this phase, the moon is positioned between the Sun and Earth and is 0% illuminated (i.e the moon is not visible to us in the sky).

Due to the alignment of the Sun, the Moon and Earth, the side of the moon that faces Earth is left in complete darkness. In technical terms this is referred to as a conjunction or Syzygy.

Also, during the New Moon phase, the moon rises and sets at around the same time as the Sun. This brings to the moon too close to the glare of the Sun for us to see the moon with the naked eye.

Fun fact: The moon can't emit its own light, it can only reflect the light from the Sun's rays. Since there is no sunlight during the New Moon phase there is nothing to reflect, so the moon becomes completely dark and unable to be seen in the sky.

Moon Phases Calendar

For optimal auroral viewing, the Moon may not disturb because light from the Moon can be very bright which causes faint aurora to be barely visible, especially when the chances for auroral viewing are low. Below you'll find the Moon Phases for the current and next month so that you'll know exactly when the Moon will be a disturbing factor.
