Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 1 January 2058 at 18:30.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2058 after 2 days on 9 January 2058 at 20:39.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 717 of Meeus index or 1670 from Brown series.
Length of current 717 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 52 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2058. It is 10 minutes longer than next lunation 718 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
12 days after point of perigee on 26 December 2057 at 07:44 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 January 2058 at 06:58 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 403 859 km (250 946 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 377 km (252 511 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 16:37 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 21 January 2058 at 19:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
At 16:37 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
11 days after previous South standstill on 26 December 2057 at 12:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.515°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.506° in the next northern standstill on 9 January 2058 at 03:44 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 9 January 2058 at 20:39 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
