Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after New Moon

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Beaver Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2055 after 10 days on 4 November 2055 at 12:12.

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 690 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 45 minutes. It is 1 hour and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 691 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠7.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠24.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 19 October 2055 at 23:43 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 November 2055 at 20:44 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 381 583 km

Moon is 381 583 km (237 105 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 106 km (252 343 mi).

10 days after its ascending node on 15 October 2055 at 00:14 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 October 2055 at 11:35 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon in southern standstill

At 12:52 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-20.867°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.007° in its northern standstill point on 9 November 2055 at 06:27 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 4 November 2055 at 12:12 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
