Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 11 November 2057 at 06:24.
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 ∠10° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2057 after 25 days on 11 December 2057 at 00:46.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 apogee on this date at 17:25, this is 16 days after last perigee on 30 October 2057 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2057 at 20:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 449 km (251 934 mi) away from Earth. It is 41 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 260 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 14 November 2057 at 04:02 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 27 November 2057 at 21:30 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 14:41 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.485°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.511° in its southern standstill point on 29 November 2057 at 01:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 26 November 2057 at 14:22 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
