Quarter* ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 4 March 2049 at 00:11.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1787" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2049 after 9 days on 19 March 2049 at 12:23.
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 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 608 of Meeus index or 1561 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 4 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 16 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 53 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠39.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠67°.
8 days after point of perigee on 1 March 2049 at 12:45 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 March 2049 at 07:24 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 401 134 km (249 253 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 598 km (251 406 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 19:09 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 24 March 2049 at 20:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 26 February 2049 at 03:09 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.575°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠22.452° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 March 2049 at 05:37 in ♊ Gemini.
In 9 days on 19 March 2049 at 12:23 in ♍ Virgo 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.
