Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2049 after 11 days on 15 June 2049 at 19:26.
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 3 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.
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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 14:39, this is 15 days after last perigee on 19 May 2049 at 19:18 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 16 June 2049 at 22:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 405 617 km (252 039 mi) away from Earth. It is 209 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 092 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days 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 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 June 2049 at 17:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 1 June 2049 at 04:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.085°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.089° in the next southern standstill on 15 June 2049 at 07:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 11 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.
