Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2049 after 12 days on 15 July 2049 at 02:29.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 8 July 2049 at 07:10
  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 15 July 2049 at 02:29
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 21 July 2049 at 18:48

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 612 / 1565

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 612 of Meeus index or 1565 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 612 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 17 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2049. It is 6 minutes longer than next lunation 613 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠162.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠162.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠185.8°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 01:01, this is 15 days after last perigee on 16 June 2049 at 22:40 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 15 July 2049 at 07:18 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 409 km

This apogee Moon is 406 409 km (252 531 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 001 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 300 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 27 June 2049 at 17:38 in ♊ Gemini, 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 12 July 2049 at 03:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 28 June 2049 at 11:03 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.088°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.045° in the next southern standstill on 12 July 2049 at 19:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 15 July 2049 at 02:29 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
