Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2057 after 14 days on 11 December 2057 at 00:46.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 14:22 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 716 of Meeus index or 1669 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute is the length of new lunation 716. It is 8 minutes longer than next lunation 717 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠339°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.4°. 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°).
10 days 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2057 at 20:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 366 907 km (227 985 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 527 km (223 400 mi).
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 November 2057 at 21:30 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.
10 days after previous North standstill on 15 November 2057 at 14:41 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.485°. Next 2 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
