Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1938" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2055 after 14 days on 4 December 2055 at 05:40.
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 20:34 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 691 of Meeus index or 1644 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 41 minutes is the length of new lunation 691. It is 2 hours and 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 692 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠24.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠45.5°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 17 November 2055 at 09:42 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 November 2055 at 09:39 in ♈ Aries.

8 days after its ascending node on 11 November 2055 at 01:13 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 November 2055 at 14:19 in ♑ Capricorn.

10 days after previous North standstill on 9 November 2055 at 06:27 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.007°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.087° in the next southern standstill on 21 November 2055 at 23:06 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
