Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon is entering ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2049 after 19 days on 13 August 2049 at 09:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 612 of Meeus index or 1565 from Brown series.

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 before apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 15 July 2049 at 07:18 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 July 2049 at 04:27 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 395 485 km

Moon is 395 485 km (245 743 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 570 km (252 631 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 21:01 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 8 August 2049 at 08:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 12 July 2049 at 19:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.045°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.002° in the next northern standstill on 25 July 2049 at 17:25 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 29 July 2049 at 20:07 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
