Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1810"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1810" and ∠1925".

Beaver Moon after 22 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2041 after 22 days on 8 November 2041 at 04:43.

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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last 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 before apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 8 October 2041 at 12:08 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 October 2041 at 16:08 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 395 954 km

Moon is 395 954 km (246 034 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 544 km (251 993 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 11 October 2041 at 01:30 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 25 October 2041 at 09:31 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 15 October 2041 at 10:36 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.830°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.842° in the next southern standstill on 30 October 2041 at 01:24 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 25 October 2041 at 01:30 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
