Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2057 after 13 days on 16 July 2057 at 09:28.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 23:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 711 of Meeus index or 1664 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 45 minutes is the length of new lunation 711. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes longer than next lunation 712 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠196.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠222.5°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 30 June 2057 at 05:32 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 15 July 2057 at 07:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 403 581 km (250 774 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 100 km (223 134 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 1 July 2057 at 09:00 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 14 July 2057 at 23:47 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 02:54 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 ∠-23.701° in its southern standstill point on 15 July 2057 at 13:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
