Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 31 May 2049 at 14:00.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2049 after 14 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 611 of Meeus index or 1564 from Brown series.
Length of current 611 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 50 minutes. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 612 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 57 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠136.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠162.9°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 19 May 2049 at 19:18 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 June 2049 at 14:39 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 401 839 km (249 691 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 617 km (252 039 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 31 May 2049 at 11:41 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 June 2049 at 17:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 04:32 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.085°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.089° in its southern standstill point on 15 June 2049 at 07:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 14 days on 15 June 2049 at 19:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
