Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 18 November 2055 at 20:34.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1824"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1824" and ∠1944".

Cold Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2055 after 9 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 691 / 1644

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 691 of Meeus index or 1644 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 691 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 41 minutes. It is 2 hours and 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 692 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠24.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠24.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠45.5°. 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 before apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 17 November 2055 at 09:42 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 November 2055 at 09:39 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 392 880 km

Moon is 392 880 km (244 124 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 307 km (251 846 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 23 November 2055 at 14:19 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 December 2055 at 02:26 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 21 November 2055 at 23:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.087°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.161° in the next northern standstill on 6 December 2055 at 12:59 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 4 December 2055 at 05:40 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
