Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 2 January 2041 at 19:08.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2041 after 12 days on 17 January 2041 at 07:11.
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.
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 507 of Meeus index or 1460 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 35 minutes. It is 39 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 9 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠342.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠358.5°.
1 day after point of perigee on 3 January 2041 at 19:39 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 18 January 2041 at 23:16 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 363 342 km (225 770 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 14 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 419 km (252 537 mi).
5 days after descending node on 30 December 2040 at 10:13 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 January 2041 at 00:01 in ♉ Taurus.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 2 January 2041 at 11:44 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.763°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.766° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 January 2041 at 15:57 in ♋ Cancer.
In 12 days on 17 January 2041 at 07:11 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
