Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 19 April 2057 at 10:49.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 708 / 1661

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 708 of Meeus index or 1661 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.63 days

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°).

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠117°

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°.

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 21 April 2057 at 04:54 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 May 2057 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 363 817 km

The Moon is 363 817 km (226 065 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 919 km (252 226 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 20:52 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 7 May 2057 at 22:16 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 11 April 2057 at 06:46 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.399°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-23.505° at the point of next southern standstill on 24 April 2057 at 07:56 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 3 May 2057 at 16:32 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
