Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2058 after 13 days on 31 October 2058 at 12:54.

This lunation true anomaly is ∠257.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠294°. 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 apogee on 11 October 2058 at 14:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 October 2058 at 04:18 in ♓ Pisces.

9 days after previous North standstill on 8 October 2058 at 22:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.830°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.927° in the next southern standstill on 23 October 2058 at 03:57 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 31 October 2058 at 12:54 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
