Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2058 after 18 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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 22:43, this is 12 days after last perigee on 1 September 2058 at 14:39 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 29 September 2058 at 18:56 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 674 km (252 074 mi) away from Earth. It is 266 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 035 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after its ascending node on 9 September 2058 at 03:37 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 23 September 2058 at 15:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.

1 day after previous North standstill on 11 September 2058 at 14:56 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.586°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.727° in the next southern standstill on 25 September 2058 at 22:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 4 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.
