Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2058 after 14 days on 6 July 2058 at 02:46.
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 00:35 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 723 of Meeus index or 1676 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 5 minutes is the length of new lunation 723. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 724 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 21 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 42 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠148.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠173.1°. 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 perigee on 8 June 2058 at 13:26 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 June 2058 at 03:14 in ♌ Leo.

1 day after its ascending node on 19 June 2058 at 19:09 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 July 2058 at 03:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 22:19 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠25.284°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-25.284° in its southern standstill point on 5 July 2058 at 20:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
