Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 11 August 2058 at 04:00.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1822" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2058 after 21 days on 2 September 2058 at 16:51.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 4 August 2058 at 05:22 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 August 2058 at 13:13 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 393 303 km (244 387 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 424 km (252 540 mi).
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 August 2058 at 02:08 in ♊ Gemini.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 2 August 2058 at 07:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.332°. Next 2 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.
After 6 days on 19 August 2058 at 07:03 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
