Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 23 June 2057 at 21:08.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2057 after 15 days on 16 July 2057 at 09:28.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 05:32, this is 13 days after last perigee on 16 June 2057 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2057 at 07:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 406 331 km (252 482 mi) away from Earth. It is 923 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 378 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after its descending node on 17 June 2057 at 13:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 1 July 2057 at 09:00 in ♋ Cancer.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 18 June 2057 at 03:11 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.700°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.700° in the next northern standstill on 2 July 2057 at 02:54 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 1 July 2057 at 23:47 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
