New moon of June 2024 tonight lets Saturn, Mars and Jupiter shine

The new moon of June 2024 occurs tonight, making this a great night to get and enjoy a sky free from the glare of the moon.

New moons occur about every 28.5 days, as the moon passes between the sun and Earth on its journey around its orbit. More formally, a new moon is when the sun and moon share the same celestial longitude, a projection of the Earth’s longitude lines on the sky. This is also known as a conjunction.
