Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 28 January 2057 at 03:44.
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 ∠25° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1938" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2057 after 16 days on 19 February 2057 at 11:56.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 705 of Meeus index or 1658 from Brown series.
Length of current 705 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 21 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 706 length.
Length of current synodic month is 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 46 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠26.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠48.7°. 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 perigee on 31 January 2057 at 18:59 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 February 2057 at 14:05 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 369 930 km (229 864 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 414 km (251 291 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 1 February 2057 at 14:12 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 February 2057 at 14:03 in ♋ Cancer.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 1 February 2057 at 14:10 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.875°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.925° in the next northern standstill on 15 February 2057 at 14:48 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 3 February 2057 at 22:10 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
