In astronomy, the new moon is the first lunar phase, when the Moon and Sun have the same ecliptic longitude. At this phase, the lunar disk is not visible to the unaided eye, except when silhouetted during a solar eclipse. Daylight outshines the earthlight that dimly illuminates the new moon.
New moons generally can't be seen. They cross the sky with the sun during the day. This month's new moon happens on April 23 at 02:26 UTC. That's April 22 according to clocks in North America.
