What does the New Moon do?

The New Moon is the most difficult phases of the Moon to observe because it’s too close to the Sun. Furthermore, the Moon’s visible side isn’t illuminated by the Sun during its orbit, so it becomes invisible once night falls. Afterwards, the Moon will appear as a tiny little crescent which will get bigger and bigger, day by day. 

The New Moon is the first lunar phase, when both the Sun and the Moon are at the same celestial longitude. During the phase of the New Moon, the lunar disk is invisible to the naked eye. The Moon affects are very important and impacting on the human body, our mental health and even women's menstrual cycles.
