Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 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 ∠24° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2057 after 10 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 4 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 30 October 2057 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 15 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 November 2057 at 17:25 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 363 762 km (226 031 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 15 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 449 km (251 934 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 13:39 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 14 November 2057 at 04:02 in ♊ Gemini.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 19 October 2057 at 06:50 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.312°. Next day 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 10 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.
