Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2058 after 22 days on 29 December 2058 at 20:25.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 728 of Meeus index or 1681 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.54 days

Length of current 728 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes longer than next lunation 729 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠294°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠294°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠321.5°. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 6 December 2058 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 26 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 January 2059 at 02:24 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 404 533 km

Moon is 404 533 km (251 365 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 26 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 679 km (252 077 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 29 November 2058 at 23:07 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 December 2058 at 09:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 2 December 2058 at 15:32 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.007°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.991° in the next southern standstill on 16 December 2058 at 18:17 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 15 December 2058 at 16:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
