Moon* ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 18 July 2048 at 18:31.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1959" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2048 after 1 day on 25 July 2048 at 09:34.
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 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 600 of Meeus index or 1553 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 52 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠210.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠240.4°.
1 day after point of perigee on 23 July 2048 at 16:18 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 4 August 2048 at 17:05 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 365 983 km (227 411 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 004 km (251 658 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 22 July 2048 at 23:38 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 5 August 2048 at 13:07 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 22 July 2048 at 09:07 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.710°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.656° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 August 2048 at 20:01 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 25 July 2048 at 09:34 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
