Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 2 March 2058 at 05:10.
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 ∠21° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2058 after 4 days on 10 March 2058 at 08:52.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 719 of Meeus index or 1672 from Brown series.
Length of current 719 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 53 minutes. It is 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 720 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠28.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠50.9°. 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 apogee on this date at 03:58, this is 11 days after last perigee on 21 February 2058 at 06:06 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 21 March 2058 at 01:53 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 080 km (251 705 mi) away from Earth. It is 328 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 629 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
2 days after its ascending node on 2 March 2058 at 22:25 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 March 2058 at 01:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 4 March 2058 at 15:47 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.758°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.900° in the next southern standstill on 18 March 2058 at 14:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 4 days on 10 March 2058 at 08:52 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
