Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 2 May 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 ∠13° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2049 after 12 days on 17 May 2049 at 11:13.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 610 of Meeus index or 1563 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute 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 5 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 58 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠102.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠136.3°.
12 days after point of perigee on 22 April 2049 at 11:15 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 7 May 2049 at 22:34 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 400 495 km (248 856 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 657 km (251 442 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 04:33 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 18 May 2049 at 07:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
At 21:27 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.094°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.086° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 18 May 2049 at 21:47.
In 12 days on 17 May 2049 at 11:13 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
