Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days 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 ∠20° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2049 after 10 days on 9 December 2049 at 07:28.
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 4 days 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 11:08, this is 11 days after last apogee on 16 November 2049 at 15:07 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 14 December 2049 at 11:17 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 366 491 km (227 727 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 983 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 865 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 December 2049 at 22:33 in ♉ Taurus.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 26 November 2049 at 06:55 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.274°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.283° in the next northern standstill on 9 December 2049 at 08:52 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 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.
