Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 17 May 2049 at 11:13.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1948" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2049 after 28 days on 15 June 2049 at 19:26.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
10 days after point of apogee on 7 May 2049 at 22:34 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 May 2049 at 19:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 367 970 km (228 646 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 447 km (225 835 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 07:42 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 31 May 2049 at 11:41 in ♊ Gemini.
At 07:42 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
At 21:47 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-22.086°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠22.085° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 1 June 2049 at 04:32.
In 13 days on 31 May 2049 at 14:00 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
