Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days 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.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2057 after 12 days on 17 June 2057 at 02:18.
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 2 days 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 3 June 2057 at 02:13 in ♊ Gemini. 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 16 June 2057 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 404 464 km (251 322 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 134 km (221 913 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 02:51 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 17 June 2057 at 13:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
At 02:51 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 20:49 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.700°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.700° in its southern standstill point on 18 June 2057 at 03:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 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.
