Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2058.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
11 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 July 2058 at 19:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 365 612 km (227 181 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 903 km (222 391 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 4 July 2058 at 03:23 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 16 July 2058 at 23:56 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 20:52 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.284°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.278° in its northern standstill point on 19 July 2058 at 03:57 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
