Moon* ♍ Virgo
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99% and growing larger. The 14 days young Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 6 March 2055 at 14:48.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2055 after 1 day on 13 March 2055 at 08:57.
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 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 682 of Meeus index or 1635 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 22 minutes. It is 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠170.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠194.9°.
12 days after point of apogee on 27 February 2055 at 13:56 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 March 2055 at 06:25 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 363 563 km (225 908 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 697 km (221 641 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 11 March 2055 at 03:26 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 24 March 2055 at 03:28 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.
4 days since the previous standstill on 8 March 2055 at 09:08 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.771°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.832° at the point of next southern standstill on 20 March 2055 at 22:19 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 13 March 2055 at 08:57 in ♍ Virgo 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.
