Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 7 February 2041 at 23:40.

Moonrise and moonset

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 in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Snow Moon after 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2041 after 6 days on 16 February 2041 at 02:21.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 508 / 1461

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 508 of Meeus index or 1461 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 508 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 56 minutes. It is 6 minutes longer than next lunation 509 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠358.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠14°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 1 February 2041 at 07:46 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 February 2041 at 23:03 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 391 564 km

Moon is 391 564 km (243 307 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 498 km (252 586 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 8 February 2041 at 00:39 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 February 2041 at 16:13 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 29 January 2041 at 22:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.843°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.907° in the next northern standstill on 11 February 2041 at 21:04 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 16 February 2041 at 02:21 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
