Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 15 August 2055 at 14:26.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1883" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2055 after 17 days on 6 September 2055 at 01:56.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 687 of Meeus index or 1640 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 27 minutes. It is 22 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 4 hours and 17 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 52 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠315.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠336.4°.
7 days after point of apogee on 12 August 2055 at 01:01 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 24 August 2055 at 04:11 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 380 736 km (236 578 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 218 km (223 829 mi).
12 days after descending node on 7 August 2055 at 01:42 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 August 2055 at 10:18 in ♌ Leo.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 08:07 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠20.416°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-20.442° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 31 August 2055 at 23:31.
In 3 days on 22 August 2055 at 18:14 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
