Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 3 May 2057 at 16:32.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2057 after 11 days on 18 May 2057 at 19:02.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 709 of Meeus index or 1662 from Brown series.
Length of current 709 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 39 minutes. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 6 May 2057 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 May 2057 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 405 054 km (251 689 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 926 km (222 405 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 22:16 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 21 May 2057 at 03:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 22:16 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
13 days after previous South standstill on 24 April 2057 at 07:56 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.505°. Next day 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.
After 11 days on 18 May 2057 at 19:02 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
