Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2049 after 14 days on 13 August 2049 at 09:19.
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 20:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 613 of Meeus index or 1566 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 11 minutes is the length of new lunation 613. It is 25 minutes longer than next lunation 614 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠185.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠210.2°. 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 apogee on this date at 04:27, this is 13 days after last perigee on 15 July 2049 at 07:18 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 12 August 2049 at 17:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 570 km (252 631 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2049. It is 1 162 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 139 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 24 July 2049 at 21:01 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 August 2049 at 08:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 25 July 2049 at 17:25 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.002°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.891° in the next southern standstill on 9 August 2049 at 04:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
