Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 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.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1827" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2058 after 25 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 19 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°).
6 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 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 October 2058 at 14:58 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 392 409 km (243 832 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 766 km (251 510 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 07:21 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 20 October 2058 at 17:23 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 07:21 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
10 days after previous South standstill on 25 September 2058 at 22:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.727°. Next 2 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 11 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.
