Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 25 January 2041 at 10:33.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1946" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2041 after 17 days on 16 February 2041 at 02:21.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
10 days after point of apogee on 18 January 2041 at 23:16 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 February 2041 at 07:46 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 368 374 km (228 897 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 610 km (221 587 mi).
2 days after descending node on 26 January 2041 at 15:09 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 February 2041 at 00:39 in ♉ Taurus.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 22:24 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-26.843°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠26.907° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 11 February 2041 at 21:04.
In 2 days on 1 February 2041 at 05:43 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
