Gibbous ♎ Libra
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 79% and getting smaller. The 19 days old Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 13 January 2055 at 11:21.
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 is passing about ∠23° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2055 after 25 days on 11 February 2055 at 22:48.
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.
The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 680 of Meeus index or 1633 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 47 minutes. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠109.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠143.9°.
2 days after point of perigee on 15 January 2055 at 09:13 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 31 January 2055 at 06:49 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 363 510 km (225 875 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 942 km (252 241 mi).
2 days after ascending node on 15 January 2055 at 05:53 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 28 January 2055 at 16:32 in ♒ Aquarius.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 12 January 2055 at 12:37 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.742°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.724° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 January 2055 at 10:36 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 10 days on 27 January 2055 at 17:39 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
