Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days 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 ∠5° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2057 after 1 day on 14 August 2057 at 17:21.
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 712 of Meeus index or 1665 from Brown series.
Length of current 712 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 23 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes longer than next lunation 713 length.
Length of current synodic month is 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠222.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠255.9°. 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 12 August 2057 at 10:32 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 August 2057 at 07:38 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 367 207 km (228 172 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 603 km (251 409 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 11 August 2057 at 07:29 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 August 2057 at 19:03 in ♊ Gemini.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 11 August 2057 at 22:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.760°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.822° in the next northern standstill on 25 August 2057 at 15:28 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 14 August 2057 at 17:21 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
