Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 25 February 2049 at 07:36.
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 ∠24° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2049 after 21 days on 19 March 2049 at 12:23.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
12 days 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 March 2049 at 12:45 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 364 391 km (226 422 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 178 km (226 290 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 25 February 2049 at 20:27 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 10 March 2049 at 19:09 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.
At 03:09 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-22.575°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠22.452° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 11 March 2049 at 05:37.
In 5 days on 4 March 2049 at 00:11 in ♓ Pisces 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.
