Crescent ♋ Cancer
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 first ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2049 after 13 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 2 days 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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 50 minutes. It is 27 minutes 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 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 57 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠136.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠162.9°.
13 days after point of perigee on 19 May 2049 at 19:18 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 4 June 2049 at 14:39 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 403 969 km (251 015 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 617 km (252 039 mi).
2 days after descending node on 31 May 2049 at 11:41 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 14 June 2049 at 17:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 1 June 2049 at 04:32 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.085°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.089° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 June 2049 at 07:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 15 June 2049 at 19:26 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
