Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 25 June 2055 at 00:15.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2055 after 12 days on 8 July 2055 at 22:11.
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 686 of Meeus index or 1639 from Brown series.
Length of current 686 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 32 minutes. 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°).
8 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 June 2055 at 11:09 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 375 319 km (233 212 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 268 km (229 452 mi).
13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 June 2055 at 16:35 in ♌ Leo.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 25 June 2055 at 12:46 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.427°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.424° in the next southern standstill on 8 July 2055 at 11:08 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 days on 8 July 2055 at 22:11 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
