Crescent ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2057 after 14 days on 18 May 2057 at 19:02.
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 16:32 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 709 of Meeus index or 1662 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 39 minutes is the length of new lunation 709. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2057. It is 3 minutes longer than next lunation 710 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠148.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠173.3°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 21 April 2057 at 04:54 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 May 2057 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 403 575 km (250 770 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 919 km (252 226 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 23 April 2057 at 20:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 May 2057 at 22:16 in ♊ Gemini.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 24 April 2057 at 07:56 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.505°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.611° in the next northern standstill on 8 May 2057 at 14:10 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
