Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 4 November 2055 at 12:12.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1822"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1822" and ∠1937".

Beaver Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2055 after 26 days on 4 December 2055 at 05:40.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 690 / 1643

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 690 of Meeus index or 1643 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 1 November 2055 at 20:44 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 November 2055 at 09:42 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 393 325 km

Moon is 393 325 km (244 401 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 295 km (223 877 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 27 October 2055 at 11:35 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 November 2055 at 01:13 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 25 October 2055 at 12:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.867°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.007° in the next northern standstill on 9 November 2055 at 06:27 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 18 November 2055 at 20:34 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
