Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" 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 15 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 19:45, this is 12 days after last apogee on 24 June 2058 at 03:14 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 21 July 2058 at 10:15 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 357 903 km (222 391 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 605 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 453 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days 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 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 July 2058 at 23:56 in ♊ Gemini.

1 day after previous South standstill on 5 July 2058 at 20:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.284°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.278° in the next northern standstill 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.
