Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 20 July 2058 at 15:40.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2058 after 13 days on 4 August 2058 at 09:37.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 724 of Meeus index or 1677 from Brown series.
Length of current 724 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 23 minutes. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 10:15, this is 14 days after last perigee on 6 July 2058 at 19:45 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 4 August 2058 at 05:22 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 575 km (252 634 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2058. It is 1 167 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 134 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 July 2058 at 11:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 19 July 2058 at 03:57 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.278°. Next 11 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.
After 13 days on 4 August 2058 at 09:37 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
