Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 28 October 2057 at 03:19.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2057 after 11 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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 715 of Meeus index or 1668 from Brown series.
Length of current 715 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 3 minutes. It is 3 minutes longer than next lunation 716 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠318.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 17:10, this is 11 days after last apogee on 18 October 2057 at 22:29 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 15 November 2057 at 17:25 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 364 513 km (226 498 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 005 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 843 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 October 2057 at 13:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 19 October 2057 at 06:50 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.312°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.406° in the next southern standstill on 1 November 2057 at 16:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 11 November 2057 at 06:24 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
