Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 9 July 2057 at 18:37.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2057 after 1 day 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 711 of Meeus index or 1664 from Brown series.
Length of current 711 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 45 minutes. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:01, this is 15 days after last apogee on 30 June 2057 at 05:32 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 July 2057 at 15:44 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 359 100 km (223 134 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 408 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 256 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 14 July 2057 at 23:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 July 2057 at 14:55 in ♊ Gemini.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 13:52 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.701°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.709° in its northern standstill point on 29 July 2057 at 08:55 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 16 July 2057 at 09:28 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
