Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 25 November 2049 at 05:35.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1933" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2049 after 12 days on 9 December 2049 at 07:28.
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 617 of Meeus index or 1570 from Brown series.
Length of current 617 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 618 length.
Length of current synodic month is 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠332.9°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 16 November 2049 at 15:07 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 November 2049 at 11:08 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 370 842 km (230 431 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 491 km (227 727 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 25 November 2049 at 00:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 December 2049 at 22:33 in ♉ Taurus.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 06:55 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.274°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2049. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.283° in its northern standstill point on 9 December 2049 at 08:52 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 9 December 2049 at 07:28 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
