Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2041 after 17 days on 16 April 2041 at 12:00.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 02:37, this is 15 days after last apogee on 14 March 2041 at 07:06 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 10 April 2041 at 23:41 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 362 174 km (225 044 mi) away from Earth. It is 334 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 182 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after its descending node on 21 March 2041 at 17:35 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 April 2041 at 10:39 in ♉ Taurus.

4 days after previous South standstill on 25 March 2041 at 14:14 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.252°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.319° in the next northern standstill on 7 April 2041 at 10:33 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 1 April 2041 at 01:29 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
