Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 16 November 2058 at 03:09.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1912" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2058 after 12 days on 30 November 2058 at 03:17.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 728 of Meeus index or 1681 from Brown series.
Length of current 728 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 2 minutes. 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°).
9 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 November 2058 at 22:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 374 947 km (232 981 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 235 km (229 432 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 16 November 2058 at 23:56 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 November 2058 at 23:07 in ♉ Taurus.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 5 November 2058 at 06:51 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.986°. Next day 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 12 days on 30 November 2058 at 03:17 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
