Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2049 after 27 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 17 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 19:18. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 7 May 2049 at 22:34 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next apogee on 4 June 2049 at 14:39 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 363 447 km (225 835 mi) away from Earth. It is 939 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 909 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 18 May 2049 at 07:42 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 31 May 2049 at 11:41 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 18 May 2049 at 21:47 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.086°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.085° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 June 2049 at 04:32 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 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.
