Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 26 November 2057 at 14:22.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2057 after 13 days on 11 December 2057 at 00:46.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 716 of Meeus index or 1669 from Brown series.
Length of current 716 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 20:20, this is 12 days after last apogee on 15 November 2057 at 17:25 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 13 December 2057 at 06:08 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 359 527 km (223 400 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 981 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 829 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 21:30 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 11 December 2057 at 10:23 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.
11 days after previous North standstill on 15 November 2057 at 14:41 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.485°. Next day 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 13 days on 11 December 2057 at 00:46 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
