Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 22 May 2058 at 10:23.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2058 after 10 days on 6 June 2058 at 19:15.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 722 of Meeus index or 1675 from Brown series.
Length of current 722 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 12 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 723 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 28 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 35 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠118.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠148.7°. 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 13:11, this is 15 days after last perigee on 11 May 2058 at 17:49 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 8 June 2058 at 13:26 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 405 059 km (251 692 mi) away from Earth. It is 349 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 650 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
3 days after its ascending node on 23 May 2058 at 12:18 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 June 2058 at 17:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
3 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 25 May 2058 at 15:27 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.300°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.296° in the next southern standstill on 8 June 2058 at 10:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 6 June 2058 at 19:15 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
