Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 22 June 2049 at 09:41.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1866" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2049 after 20 days on 15 July 2049 at 02:29.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 16 June 2049 at 22:40 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 July 2049 at 01:01 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 384 212 km (238 738 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 409 km (252 531 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 14 June 2049 at 17:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 June 2049 at 17:38 in ♊ Gemini.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 15 June 2049 at 07:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.089°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.088° in the next northern standstill on 28 June 2049 at 11:03 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 30 June 2049 at 04:50 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
