Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 26 October 2049 at 16:15.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1878" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2049 after 13 days on 9 November 2049 at 15:38.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 616 of Meeus index or 1569 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 5 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 37 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 26 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠278.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠310.2°.
7 days after point of apogee on 19 October 2049 at 18:32 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 November 2049 at 18:03 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 381 729 km (237 195 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 118 km (229 981 mi).
13 days after descending node on 14 October 2049 at 06:20 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 October 2049 at 15:39 in ♏ Scorpio.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 15 October 2049 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.344°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.292° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 October 2049 at 23:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 9 November 2049 at 15:38 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
