Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 509 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2041. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 510 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠14°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠14°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠32.1°. 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 perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 14 March 2041 at 07:06 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 March 2041 at 02:37 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 376 983 km

Moon is 376 983 km (234 246 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 174 km (225 044 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 21 March 2041 at 17:35 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 April 2041 at 10:39 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 11 March 2041 at 02:59 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.133°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.252° in the next southern standstill on 25 March 2041 at 14:14 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 1 April 2041 at 01:29 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
