Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 8 July 2049 at 07:10.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2049 after 1 day 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 612 of Meeus index or 1565 from Brown series.
Length of current 612 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 17 minutes. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 2 July 2049 at 01:01 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2049 at 07:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 365 721 km (227 248 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 060 km (221 867 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 12 July 2049 at 03:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 July 2049 at 21:01 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 12 July 2049 at 19:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.045°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.002° in the next northern standstill on 25 July 2049 at 17:25 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 15 July 2049 at 02:29 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
