Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 8 April 2041 at 09:38.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♎ Libra

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1790"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1912".

Pink Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2041 after 2 days on 16 April 2041 at 12:00.

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 510 / 1463

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 510 of Meeus index or 1463 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.43 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 17 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter 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 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 42 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠32.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠32.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠56.2°.

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 10 April 2041 at 23:41 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 26 April 2041 at 16:51 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 400 465 km

The Moon is 400 465 km (248 837 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 410 km (228 298 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 3 April 2041 at 10:39 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 April 2041 at 22:27 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

11 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

7 days since the previous standstill on 7 April 2041 at 10:33 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.319°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.368° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 April 2041 at 19:43 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 16 April 2041 at 12:00 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
