Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 2 September 2058 at 16:51.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1928" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2058 after 27 days on 2 October 2058 at 01:36.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 725 of Meeus index or 1678 from Brown series.
Length of current 725 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 14 minutes. It is 27 minutes longer than next lunation 726 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠196°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠223°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 1 September 2058 at 14:39 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 September 2058 at 22:43 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 371 807 km (231 030 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 674 km (252 074 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 27 August 2058 at 14:29 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 9 September 2058 at 03:37 in ♊ Gemini.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 29 August 2058 at 15:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.493°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.586° in the next northern standstill on 11 September 2058 at 14:56 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 17 September 2058 at 22:17 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
