Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 7 days on 28 August 2049 at 11:18.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1923" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2049 after 7 days on 11 September 2049 at 17:04.
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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 614 of Meeus index or 1567 from Brown series.
Length of current 614 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 46 minutes. 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°).
10 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 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2049 at 00:14 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 372 830 km (231 666 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 122 km (224 391 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 10:20 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 17 September 2049 at 00:51 in ♊ Gemini.
At 10:20 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
13 days after previous North standstill on 22 August 2049 at 00:08 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.800°. Next day 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.
After 7 days on 11 September 2049 at 17:04 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
