Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 2 March 2041 at 15:39.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1915" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2041 after 12 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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 509 of Meeus index or 1462 from Brown series.
Length of current 509 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2041. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 510 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠14°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠32.1°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 1 March 2041 at 19:56 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 March 2041 at 07:06 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 374 371 km (232 623 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 968 km (252 257 mi).
10 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 March 2041 at 03:29 in ♉ Taurus.

7 days after previous South standstill on 26 February 2041 at 07:28 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.040°. Next 5 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 12 days on 17 March 2041 at 20:19 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
