Moon phase on 15 July 2049 Thursday is Full Moon, 15 days old Moon is in Capricorn.Share this page: twitter facebook linkedin
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2049.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:18, this is 13 days after last apogee on 2 July 2049 at 01:01 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 29 July 2049 at 04:27 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 357 060 km (221 867 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 448 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 296 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 July 2049 at 21:01 in ♊ Gemini.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 12 July 2049 at 19:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.045°. Next 10 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.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
