Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 15 days old Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 11 February 2055 at 22:48 UTC.
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1943".
The Full Moon this days is the Snow of February 2055.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 17:59. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 31 January 2055 at 06:49 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 27 February 2055 at 13:56 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 357 885 km (222 379 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 623 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 471 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 11 February 2055 at 16:36 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 February 2055 at 23:02 in ♒ Aquarius.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 8 February 2055 at 23:45 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.711°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.715° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 February 2055 at 16:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
