Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1823" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2058 after 13 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 721 of Meeus index or 1674 from Brown series.
Length of current 721 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. 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°).
8 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 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 April 2058 at 19:18 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 393 120 km (244 273 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 300 km (251 220 mi).
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 April 2058 at 05:25 in ♊ Gemini.

9 days after previous South standstill on 14 April 2058 at 20:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.135°. Next 3 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.
After 13 days on 8 May 2058 at 10:12 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
