Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1783" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2049 after 14 days on 11 September 2049 at 17:04.
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 11:18 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 614 of Meeus index or 1567 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 46 minutes is the length of new lunation 614. It is 36 minutes longer than next lunation 615 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠210.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠241.4°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 25 August 2049 at 10:27 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2049 at 00:14 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 401 932 km (249 749 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 122 km (224 391 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 20 August 2049 at 22:31 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 September 2049 at 10:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 22 August 2049 at 00:08 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.800°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.652° in the next southern standstill on 5 September 2049 at 12:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
