Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2041 after 16 days on 17 March 2041 at 20:19.
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.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 508 of Meeus index or 1461 from Brown series.
Length of current 508 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 56 minutes. It is 6 minutes longer than next lunation 509 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠14°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 19:56, this is 14 days after last apogee on 14 February 2041 at 23:03 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 14 March 2041 at 07:06 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 358 003 km (222 453 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 505 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 353 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 days after its descending node on 22 February 2041 at 16:13 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 March 2041 at 03:29 in ♉ Taurus.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 26 February 2041 at 07:28 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.040°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.133° in the next northern standstill on 11 March 2041 at 02:59 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 2 March 2041 at 15:39 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
