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.
Length of current 607 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes. It is 32 minutes shorter than next lunation 608 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠20°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠39.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
12 days after point of apogee on 13 February 2049 at 12:40 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 March 2049 at 12:45 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 364 391 km (226 422 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 178 km (226 290 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 25 February 2049 at 20:27 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 March 2049 at 19:09 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 03:09 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.575°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.452° in its northern standstill point on 11 March 2049 at 05:37 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 4 March 2049 at 00:11 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
