Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1920" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2055 after 13 days on 7 August 2055 at 10:57.
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 09:48 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 687 of Meeus index or 1640 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 27 minutes is the length of new lunation 687. It is 22 minutes longer than next lunation 688 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 17 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 52 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠315.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠336.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 15 July 2055 at 07:49 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 July 2055 at 04:56 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 373 301 km (231 958 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 935 km (226 760 mi).
13 days after its descending node on 10 July 2055 at 18:14 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 25 July 2055 at 00:16 in ♌ Leo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 22 July 2055 at 22:16 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.410°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.399° in the next southern standstill on 4 August 2055 at 18:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
