Gibbous ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 9 February 2049 at 15:38.
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 ∠19° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2049 after 3 days on 17 February 2049 at 20:47.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 607 of Meeus index or 1560 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes. It is 32 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 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠20°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠39.7°.
1 day after point of apogee on 13 February 2049 at 12:40 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 15 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 March 2049 at 12:45 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 405 326 km (251 858 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 15 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 178 km (226 290 mi).
2 days after descending node on 11 February 2049 at 17:32 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 25 February 2049 at 20:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 11 February 2049 at 21:45 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.719°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.575° at the point of next southern standstill on 26 February 2049 at 03:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 3 days on 17 February 2049 at 20:47 in ♌ Leo 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.
