Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 11 February 2057 at 12:25.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2057 after 4 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 706 of Meeus index or 1659 from Brown series.
Length of current 706 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 14 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 707 length.
Length of current synodic month is 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠48.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠80°. 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 12 February 2057 at 14:05 in ♉ Taurus. 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 26 February 2057 at 15:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 403 947 km (251 001 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 210 km (230 038 mi).
12 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 February 2057 at 14:03 in ♋ Cancer.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 1 February 2057 at 14:10 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.875°. Next day 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 4 days on 19 February 2057 at 11:56 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
