Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 2 June 2057 at 08:11.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2057 after 13 days on 17 June 2057 at 02:18.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 710 of Meeus index or 1663 from Brown series.
Length of current 710 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 36 minutes. It is 51 minutes longer than next lunation 711 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 52 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 11 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠173.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠196.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 02:13, this is 14 days after last perigee on 19 May 2057 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 16 June 2057 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 459 km (252 562 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2057. It is 1 051 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 250 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
13 days after its descending node on 21 May 2057 at 03:05 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 4 June 2057 at 02:51 in ♋ Cancer.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 21 May 2057 at 16:36 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.658°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.700° in the next northern standstill on 4 June 2057 at 20:49 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 17 June 2057 at 02:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
