Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1887" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2055 after 13 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 00:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 686 of Meeus index or 1639 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 32 minutes is the length of new lunation 686. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes longer than next lunation 687 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠288.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠315.9°. 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°).
7 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 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 June 2055 at 11:09 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 379 953 km (236 092 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 268 km (229 452 mi).
12 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 June 2055 at 16:35 in ♌ Leo.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 12:46 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠20.427°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-20.424° in its southern standstill point on 8 July 2055 at 11:08 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
