Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 12 October 2057 at 15:01.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2057 after 22 days on 11 November 2057 at 06:24.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 apogee on 18 October 2057 at 22:29 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 October 2057 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 405 228 km (251 797 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 513 km (226 498 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 17 October 2057 at 23:41 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 October 2057 at 13:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 06:50 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.312°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.406° in its southern standstill point on 1 November 2057 at 16:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 days on 28 October 2057 at 03:19 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
