Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 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 first ∠4° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2057 after 23 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 20 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 15 November 2057 at 17:25 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2057 at 20:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 403 280 km (250 587 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 527 km (223 400 mi).
3 days 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 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 November 2057 at 21:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 15 November 2057 at 14:41 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.485°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.511° in the next southern standstill on 29 November 2057 at 01:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 9 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.
