Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 26 March 2049 at 15:10.
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 first ∠3° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2049 after 20 days on 18 April 2049 at 01:04.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 608 of Meeus index or 1561 from Brown series.
Length of current 608 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than next lunation 609 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠39.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠67°. 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 13:03, this is 15 days after last apogee on 13 March 2049 at 07:24 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 10 April 2049 at 03:32 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 369 231 km (229 430 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 723 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 125 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after its ascending node on 24 March 2049 at 20:47 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 6 April 2049 at 22:31 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 25 March 2049 at 08:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.314°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.212° in the next northern standstill on 7 April 2049 at 13:42 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 2 April 2049 at 11:39 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
