Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 8 April 2058 at 22:55.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2058 after 23 days on 8 May 2058 at 10:12.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 720 of Meeus index or 1673 from Brown series.
Length of current 720 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 721 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠50.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠82.2°. 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 apogee on 1 April 2058 at 23:36 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 April 2058 at 18:36 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 364 391 km (226 422 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 945 km (229 873 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 13 April 2058 at 02:25 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 26 April 2058 at 05:25 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.
At 20:05 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.135°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.222° in its northern standstill point on 28 April 2058 at 07:29 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 22 April 2058 at 21:29 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
