Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 2 October 2058 at 01:36.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1849" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2058 after 26 days on 31 October 2058 at 12:54.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 726 of Meeus index or 1679 from Brown series.
Length of current 726 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 47 minutes. It is 43 minutes longer than next lunation 727 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠223°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠257.8°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 29 September 2058 at 18:56 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 October 2058 at 14:58 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 387 738 km (240 929 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 766 km (251 510 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 23 September 2058 at 15:09 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 6 October 2058 at 07:21 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.
9 days after previous South standstill on 25 September 2058 at 22:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.727°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.830° in the next northern standstill on 8 October 2058 at 22:15 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 17 October 2058 at 13:05 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
