Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 7 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 about ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2057 after 7 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 7 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.
Length of current 708 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 1 minute. It is 38 minutes shorter than next lunation 709 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 46 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠117°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠148.6°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 9 April 2057 at 05:48 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 April 2057 at 04:54 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 402 421 km (250 053 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 376 km (224 549 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 10 April 2057 at 19:48 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 April 2057 at 20:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 06:46 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.399°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.505° in its southern standstill point on 24 April 2057 at 07:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 days on 19 April 2057 at 10:49 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
