Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 4 November 2055 at 12:12.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1804" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2055 after 27 days on 4 December 2055 at 05:40.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 690 of Meeus index or 1643 from Brown series.
Length of current 690 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 45 minutes. It is 1 hour and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 691 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠24.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
4 days after point of apogee on 1 November 2055 at 20:44 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 November 2055 at 09:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 397 255 km (246 843 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 295 km (223 877 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 27 October 2055 at 11:35 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 November 2055 at 01:13 in ♌ Leo.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 25 October 2055 at 12:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.867°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.007° in the next northern standstill on 9 November 2055 at 06:27 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 18 November 2055 at 20:34 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
