Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1863" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2055 after 14 days on 8 July 2055 at 22:11.
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 12:57 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 685 of Meeus index or 1638 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 18 minutes is the length of new lunation 685. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than next lunation 686 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 26 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 43 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠254.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠288.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
6 days after point of apogee on 17 June 2055 at 13:16 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 June 2055 at 11:09 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 384 792 km (239 099 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 268 km (229 452 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 13 June 2055 at 11:33 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 June 2055 at 16:35 in ♌ Leo.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 11 June 2055 at 02:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.408°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.427° in the next northern standstill on 25 June 2055 at 12:46 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
