Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1891".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 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 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 perigee on this date at 05:22, this is 13 days after last apogee on 21 July 2058 at 10:15 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 17 August 2058 at 13:13 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 356 996 km (221 827 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2058. It is 5 512 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 571 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 31 July 2058 at 11:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 August 2058 at 02:08 in ♊ Gemini.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 2 August 2058 at 07:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.332°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.374° in the next northern standstill on 15 August 2058 at 09:06 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
