Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1818" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2057 after 14 days on 13 September 2057 at 02:53.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 14:32 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 712 of Meeus index or 1665 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 23 minutes is the length of new lunation 712. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 24 August 2057 at 07:38 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 September 2057 at 19:57 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 394 178 km (244 931 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 286 km (228 842 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 24 August 2057 at 19:03 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 September 2057 at 10:33 in ♑ Capricorn.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 25 August 2057 at 15:28 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.822°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.933° in the next southern standstill on 8 September 2057 at 05:28 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
