Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days 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 ∠7° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2049 after 18 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 26 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 12:45, this is 16 days after last apogee on 13 February 2049 at 12:40 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 13 March 2049 at 07:24 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 364 178 km (226 290 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 670 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 178 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 March 2049 at 19:09 in ♊ Gemini.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 26 February 2049 at 03:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.575°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.452° in the next northern standstill on 11 March 2049 at 05:37 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 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.
