Moon ♒ Aquarius
New Moon is the lunar phase on . Surface of the Moon disc is not illuminated. The 1 day young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
* The exact date and time of this New Moon phase is on 27 January 2055 at 17:39 UTC.
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1791" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2055 after 15 days on 11 February 2055 at 22:48.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 17:39 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 681 of Meeus index or 1634 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2055. It is 38 minutes longer 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 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠143.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠170.8°.
12 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 31 January 2055 at 06:49 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 400 257 km (248 708 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 942 km (252 241 mi).
12 days after ascending node on 15 January 2055 at 05:53 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 28 January 2055 at 16:32 in ♒ Aquarius.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 25 January 2055 at 10:36 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.724°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.711° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 February 2055 at 23:45 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
