Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2058 after 14 days on 8 May 2058 at 10:12.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 21:29 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 721 of Meeus index or 1674 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes is the length of new lunation 721. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 722 length.
Length of current synodic month is 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠82.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠118.2°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 15 April 2058 at 18:36 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 April 2058 at 19:18 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 388 596 km (241 462 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 300 km (251 220 mi).
10 days 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 April 2058 at 05:25 in ♊ Gemini.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 14 April 2058 at 20:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.135°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.222° in the next northern standstill on 28 April 2058 at 07:29 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
