Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 28 July 2041 at 01:02.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1890".

Sturgeon Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2041 after 12 days on 12 August 2041 at 02:04.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 514 / 1467

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 514 of Meeus index or 1467 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.63 days

Length of current 514 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 14 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 515 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠152.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠152.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠176.4°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 20:07, this is 15 days after last perigee on 15 July 2041 at 09:14 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 12 August 2041 at 16:02 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 212 km

This apogee Moon is 406 212 km (252 408 mi) away from Earth. It is 804 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 497 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 21 July 2041 at 10:19 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 August 2041 at 23:33 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 25 July 2041 at 16:19 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.332°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.426° in the next southern standstill on 9 August 2041 at 04:03 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 12 August 2041 at 02:04 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
