Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 4 April 2057 at 01:31.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2057 after 8 days on 19 April 2057 at 10:49.
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 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 708 of Meeus index or 1661 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 1 minute. It is 38 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 46 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠117°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠148.6°.
1 day after point of apogee on 9 April 2057 at 05:48 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 April 2057 at 04:54 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 404 378 km (251 269 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 376 km (224 549 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 19:48 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 23 April 2057 at 20:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
At 19:48 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
13 days since the previous standstill on 28 March 2057 at 01:43 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.258°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠23.399° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 April 2057 at 06:46 in ♋ Cancer.
In 8 days on 19 April 2057 at 10:49 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
