Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 6 June 2058 at 19:15.
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 ∠11° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2058 after 27 days on 6 July 2058 at 02:46.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 perigee on this date at 13:26, this is 12 days after last apogee on 27 May 2058 at 13:11 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 24 June 2058 at 03:14 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 361 344 km (224 529 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 164 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 012 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 6 June 2058 at 17:09 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 19 June 2058 at 19:09 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 10:49 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.296°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.284° in its northern standstill point on 21 June 2058 at 22:19 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 21 June 2058 at 00:35 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
