Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days 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 ∠25° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2058 after 9 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 5 days 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 22:40, this is 12 days after last apogee on 8 November 2058 at 10:49 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 6 December 2058 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 369 235 km (229 432 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 727 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 121 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 November 2058 at 23:07 in ♉ Taurus.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 19 November 2058 at 09:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.009°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.007° in the next northern standstill on 2 December 2058 at 15:32 in ♋ Cancer.
After 9 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.
