According to the report from NASA SkyCal, the September new moon will arrive on Monday 6 September. It will pass through Mercury and Venus in the next two days.
The new moon pertains to be a moon when it comes directly in between the sun and earth and shares similar celestial longitude. The moon will be officially new at 8.52 pm. EDT.
The September New Moon’s Visibility
It becomes visible when there is a solar eclipse on the earth. The moon creates a tilt of 5 degrees relative to the Earth’s orbit.
There is a difference of timings for the appearance of the new moon. It depends on the time zone of countries according to the position on earth.
For instance, In Australia the new moon occurs at 10:52 a.m. on 7th September. While in London it occurs at 1:52 a.m on 7th September. Furthermore the new moon could be seen through the Orion GoScope ii.
The New Moon In September!
The new moon occurs when the sun and moon are on the same side. In real circumstances the New moon can’t be seen. Moon’s shadow could be made toward earth.
In September, the nights are getting longer and stars will shine bright. This is going to be the start of Autumn nights. The moon will be only a day and half old.
Thus the moon would appear like a thin crescent after the sunset. It is now seen late at night in the sky and the other planets too have an impact of this.
New Moon And Mercury: In Close Junction!
During September’s new moon some planets do appear low in the skies after the sunset. This time the planets Mercury and Venus would appear during the conjunction with the new moon.
Thus the new moon meets with the planet Mercury on the 8th of September. However the pairing of both could be visible only from regions of southern latitudes.
From New York City
According to the report of Skywaching Site heavens, the new moon would be about 9 degrees above horizon at the time of sunset in New York city.
However the pairing of the moon and Mercury could be held at 4:18 p.m the local time in New York. This pairing would be invisible because of daylight and glare.
From Mexico City
Ultimately the Moon and Mercury’s junction would be held at 3:18 p.m from the City Of Mexico. However it’s also during the day after the sunset, the moon appears not less than 17 degrees above horizon.
Thus when the sky gets darker, the Mercury and Moon pairing would be visible then. This would be from 8 to 9 p.m as the local time in Mexico city.
The Moon And Venus
This would be another conjunction held between the new moon and Venus. The conjunction would happen on Friday September 10 at 1:17 a.m EDT ( 0517 GMT).
According to the In-The-Sky organisation, the venus and moon would be in a close conjunction. These are surrounded in a constellation virgo after the sunset.
From Newyork city, the view could be easily seen after sunset. Because the venus brightens a lot, it would have a clear visibility after 7 p.m according to local time in Newyork city.
Furthermore the visions of moon and venus junction would be more clear in other regions too. These include Cape town, Australia, California, Honolulu and Hawaii. The moon and Venus are going to form a rough line from the horizon. As going beyond the horizon and slightly to the right (north).
