The New Moon of January 2023 coincides with the point in the Moon’s orbit where it is closest to Earth.

The New Moon On Saturday Will Be The Closest To Earth In 1,337 Years

Saturday’s new moon won’t be visible to the unaided eye, but it will be the planet’s closest new moon in 1,337 year period.

The next time the New Moon is this close to Earth will be 345 years from now, making this the closest New Moon in 1337 years.

According to our calculations, on January 21, 2023, the New Moon will be at its closest distance to Earth for the last 992 years.

New moons haven’t been so close to Earth in 1,337 years and won’t be for another 345 years, according to the website.

New moons occur every month when the moon is between the sun and the Earth, similar to how a full moon is the opposite of a new moon.

Make sure you watch the moon with a telescope!
