Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 26 January 2049 at 21:33.
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 passing about ∠13° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2049 after 17 days on 17 February 2049 at 20:47.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 606 of Meeus index or 1559 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 51 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2049. It is 5 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 16 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠3.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠20°.
14 days after point of apogee on 17 January 2049 at 00:48 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 February 2049 at 08:51 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 363 325 km (225 760 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 256 km (223 231 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 29 January 2049 at 17:52 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 11 February 2049 at 17:32 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.
1 day since the previous standstill on 29 January 2049 at 19:42 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.806°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.719° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 February 2049 at 21:45 in ♊ Gemini.
In 2 days on 2 February 2049 at 13:16 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
