* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 12 July 2058 at 17:28 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1901" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2058 after 22 days on 4 August 2058 at 09:37.
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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 6 July 2058 at 19:45 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 July 2058 at 10:15 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 376 994 km (234 253 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 575 km (252 634 mi).
8 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 July 2058 at 23:56 in ♊ Gemini.

6 days after previous South standstill on 5 July 2058 at 20:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.284°. Next 6 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.
After 8 days on 20 July 2058 at 15:40 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
