Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2058 after 21 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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 10:49, this is 12 days after last perigee on 27 October 2058 at 04:18 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 20 November 2058 at 22:40 in ♑ Capricorn.

5 days after its ascending node on 2 November 2058 at 14:30 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 November 2058 at 23:56 in ♏ Scorpio.

3 days after previous North standstill on 5 November 2058 at 06:51 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.986°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.009° in the next southern standstill on 19 November 2058 at 09:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 7 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.
