Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 17 January 2058 at 19:43.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2058 after 16 days on 8 February 2058 at 15:54.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 21:00, this is 14 days after last apogee on 9 January 2058 at 06:58 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 5 February 2058 at 12:03 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 357 538 km (222 164 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 970 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 818 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 21 January 2058 at 19:04 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 February 2058 at 20:37 in ♊ Gemini.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 22 January 2058 at 23:21 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.534°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.565° in the next northern standstill on 5 February 2058 at 09:27 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 24 January 2058 at 12:14 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
