Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2049 after 14 days on 15 July 2049 at 02:29.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 04:50 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 612 of Meeus index or 1565 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 17 minutes is the length of new lunation 612. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2049. It is 6 minutes longer than next lunation 613 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠162.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠185.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
13 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 July 2049 at 01:01 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 404 726 km (251 485 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 409 km (252 531 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 27 June 2049 at 17:38 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 July 2049 at 03:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 28 June 2049 at 11:03 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.088°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.045° in the next southern standstill on 12 July 2049 at 19:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
