Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 16 February 2041 at 02:21.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1779"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1941".

Snow Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2041 after 28 days on 17 March 2041 at 20:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 508 / 1461

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 508 of Meeus index or 1461 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 56 minutes. It is 6 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠358.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠358.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠14°.

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 14 February 2041 at 23:03 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 March 2041 at 19:56 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 010 km

The Moon is 403 010 km (250 419 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 003 km (222 453 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 8 February 2041 at 00:39 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 22 February 2041 at 16:13 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 11 February 2041 at 21:04 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.907°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.040° at the point of next southern standstill on 26 February 2041 at 07:28 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 2 March 2041 at 15:39 in ♓ Pisces 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.
