Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1888" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2058 after 13 days on 30 November 2058 at 03:17.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 03:09 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 728 of Meeus index or 1681 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 2 minutes is the length of new lunation 728. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes longer than next lunation 729 length.
Length of current synodic month is 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠294°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠321.5°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 8 November 2058 at 10:49 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 November 2058 at 22:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 379 553 km (235 843 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 235 km (229 432 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♏ Scorpio at 23:56 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 29 November 2058 at 23:07 in ♉ Taurus.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 5 November 2058 at 06:51 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.986°. Next 2 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
