Moon phase on 16 July 2057 Monday is Full Moon, 15 days old Moon is in Capricorn.Share this page: twitter facebook linkedin
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1958" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2057.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 15 July 2057 at 07:01 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 July 2057 at 15:44 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 366 069 km (227 465 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 562 km (252 005 mi).
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 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 July 2057 at 14:55 in ♊ Gemini.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 15 July 2057 at 13:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.701°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.709° in the next northern standstill on 29 July 2057 at 08:55 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
