Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 21 July 2049 at 18:48.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2049 after 16 days on 13 August 2049 at 09:19.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 612 of Meeus index or 1565 from Brown series.
The length of the 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 the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 33 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 30 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠162.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠185.8°.
12 days after point of perigee on 15 July 2049 at 07:18 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 29 July 2049 at 04:27 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 404 082 km (251 085 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 570 km (252 631 mi).
2 days after descending node on 24 July 2049 at 21:01 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 August 2049 at 08:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 25 July 2049 at 17:25 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.002°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.891° at the point of next southern standstill on 9 August 2049 at 04:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 29 July 2049 at 20:07 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
