Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2058 after 14 days on 4 August 2058 at 09:37.
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 15:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 724 of Meeus index or 1677 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 23 minutes is the length of new lunation 724. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2058. It is 9 minutes longer than next lunation 725 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠173.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠196°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
13 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 July 2058 at 10:15 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 405 213 km (251 788 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 575 km (252 634 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 16 July 2058 at 23:56 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 July 2058 at 11:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 19 July 2058 at 03:57 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.278°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.332° in the next southern standstill on 2 August 2058 at 07:06 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
