Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 25 September 2041 at 08:41.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♏ Scorpio later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1799"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1799" and ∠1915".

Hunter Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2041 after 12 days on 9 October 2041 at 18:03.

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 516 / 1469

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 516 of Meeus index or 1469 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.7 days

Length of current 516 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 49 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2041. It is 43 minutes longer than next lunation 517 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠200.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠200.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠229.1°. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 23 September 2041 at 04:59 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 October 2041 at 12:08 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 398 347 km

Moon is 398 347 km (247 521 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 445 km (223 349 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 days after its ascending node on 13 September 2041 at 16:25 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 September 2041 at 03:42 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the first to the middle part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 18 September 2041 at 03:03 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.700°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.789° in the next southern standstill on 2 October 2041 at 19:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 9 October 2041 at 18:03 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
