Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 31 October 2058 at 12:54.
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 ∠5° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1840" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2058 after 27 days on 30 November 2058 at 03:17.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 727 of Meeus index or 1680 from Brown series.
Length of current 727 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 4 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 728 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 20 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 43 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
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 perigee on 27 October 2058 at 04:18 in ♓ Pisces. 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 8 November 2058 at 10:49 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 389 552 km (242 056 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 362 km (251 259 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 14:30 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 16 November 2058 at 23:56 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 14:30 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
10 days after previous South standstill on 23 October 2058 at 03:57 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.927°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.986° in the next northern standstill on 5 November 2058 at 06:51 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 16 November 2058 at 03:09 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
