Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2058 after 18 days on 8 April 2058 at 22:55.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 perigee on this date at 01:53, this is 15 days after last apogee on 5 March 2058 at 03:58 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 1 April 2058 at 23:36 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 366 648 km (227 825 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 140 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 708 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 17 March 2058 at 01:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 March 2058 at 00:38 in ♊ Gemini.

2 days after previous South standstill on 18 March 2058 at 14:46 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.900°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.018° in the next northern standstill on 31 March 2058 at 23:15 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 24 March 2058 at 09:50 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
