New Moon 2020: When is the March New Moon? Why is the Moon so dark tonight?
The New Moon marks the end of one lunar cycle and heralds the start of another. A New Moon appears every 29.5 days, which is the length of the lunar cycle, and the Moon takes about 27.3 days to complete a lap around our planet.

What is the New Moon?
If you look up at the sky tonight (March 22) the Moon might appear as a tiny sliver of light or not be visible at all.

This is because the Moon has entered its Waning Crescent Phase, the last stage before the New Moon.

A New Moon appears when the lunar orb is fully lit by the Sun on the side facing away from us.

As the Moon races around our planet, and the Sun by extension, different amounts of its Earth-facing side are lit by the Sun every day.
