Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 1 December 2049 at 23:39.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1852" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2049 after 1 day 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 perigee on 28 November 2049 at 11:08 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 December 2049 at 11:17 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 386 975 km (240 455 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 260 km (251 817 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 22:33 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 22 December 2049 at 10:13 in ♏ Scorpio.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 26 November 2049 at 06:55 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.274°. Next day 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 1 day 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.
