Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 8 August 2057 at 01:30.
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 ∠6° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2057 after 5 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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 712 of Meeus index or 1665 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 23 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 39 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 24 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠222.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠255.9°.
12 days after point of apogee on 27 July 2057 at 15:44 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 August 2057 at 10:32 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 364 485 km (226 480 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 290 km (225 738 mi).
11 days after ascending node on 28 July 2057 at 14:55 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 11 August 2057 at 07:29 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 29 July 2057 at 08:55 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.709°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.760° at the point of next southern standstill on 11 August 2057 at 22:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 5 days on 14 August 2057 at 17:21 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
