Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 29 June 2058 at 04:13.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1926" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2058 after 2 days on 6 July 2058 at 02:46.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 723 of Meeus index or 1676 from Brown series.
Length of current 723 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 5 minutes. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 24 June 2058 at 03:14 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 July 2058 at 19:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 372 249 km (231 305 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 903 km (222 391 mi).
13 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 July 2058 at 03:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the first to the middle part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 21 June 2058 at 22:19 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.284°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.284° in the next southern standstill on 5 July 2058 at 20:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 6 July 2058 at 02:46 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
