Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 28 September 2057 at 16:00.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2057 after 8 days on 12 October 2057 at 15:01.
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 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 714 of Meeus index or 1667 from Brown series.
Length of current 714 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 19 minutes. It is 16 minutes longer than next lunation 715 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 44 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠291.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠318.8°. 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 3 October 2057 at 19:39 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 October 2057 at 22:29 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 363 383 km (225 796 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 515 km (251 354 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 10:59 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 17 October 2057 at 23:41 in ♊ Gemini.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 21 September 2057 at 22:51 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.051°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.184° in the next southern standstill on 5 October 2057 at 10:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 days on 12 October 2057 at 15:01 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
