New Moon
The new moon is the beginning of the month in the Chinese calendar. Each new lunar cycle is measured beginning at each new moon. Astronomers call one lunar cycle a lunation. On the day of new moon, the moon rises when the sun rises. It sets when the sun sets. It crosses the sky with the sun during the day. Once each month, the moon comes all the way around in its orbit so that it is more or less between us and the sun. If the moon always passed directly between the sun and Earth at new moon, a solar eclipse would take place every month. But that doesn't happen every month. Instead, in most months, the moon passes above or below the sun as seen from our earthly vantage point.
