Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 3 September 2041 at 17:19.

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 ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Harvest Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2041 after 3 days on 10 September 2041 at 09:24.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Lunation 515 / 1468

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 515 of Meeus index or 1468 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.68 days

Length of current 515 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 25 minutes. It is 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 516 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠176.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠200.1°. 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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 27 August 2041 at 02:03 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2041 at 02:12 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 369 790 km

Moon is 369 790 km (229 777 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 004 km (221 832 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 1 September 2041 at 00:51 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 September 2041 at 16:25 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 5 September 2041 at 12:54 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.620°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.700° in the next northern standstill on 18 September 2041 at 03:03 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 10 September 2041 at 09:24 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
