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 ∠20° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2057 after 18 days on 14 August 2057 at 17:21.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 apogee on this date at 15:44, this is 12 days after last perigee on 15 July 2057 at 07:01 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 12 August 2057 at 10:32 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 405 562 km (252 005 mi) away from Earth. It is 154 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 147 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 July 2057 at 14:55 in ♊ Gemini.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 15 July 2057 at 13:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.701°. Next day 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.
After 4 days on 31 July 2057 at 14:32 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
