Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 1 April 2041 at 01:29.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1906" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2041 after 14 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 510 of Meeus index or 1463 from Brown series.
Length of current 510 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 17 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 511 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠32.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠56.2°. 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 30 March 2041 at 02:37 in ♓ Pisces. 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 10 April 2041 at 23:41 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 376 020 km (233 648 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 998 km (251 654 mi).
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 April 2041 at 10:39 in ♉ Taurus.

7 days after previous South standstill on 25 March 2041 at 14:14 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.252°. Next 4 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 14 days on 16 April 2041 at 12:00 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
