Crescent ♓ Pisces
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 3% and growing larger. The 2 days young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 27 January 2055 at 17:39.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2055 after 13 days on 11 February 2055 at 22:48.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠143.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠170.8°.
14 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 31 January 2055 at 06:49 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 404 603 km (251 409 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 942 km (252 241 mi).
1 day after descending node on 28 January 2055 at 16:32 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 11 February 2055 at 16:36 in ♌ Leo.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 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 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.711° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 February 2055 at 23:45 in ♋ Cancer.
In 13 days on 11 February 2055 at 22:48 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
