Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 30 April 2041 at 11:46.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1849" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2041 after 13 days on 16 May 2041 at 00:52.
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.
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 511 of Meeus index or 1464 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 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°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 34 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 35 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠56.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠88.5°.
5 days after point of perigee on 26 April 2041 at 16:51 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 May 2041 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 387 612 km (240 851 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 308 km (251 225 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 30 April 2041 at 20:05 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 May 2041 at 06:22 in ♏ Scorpio.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 21 April 2041 at 19:43 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.368°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.379° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 May 2041 at 19:15 in ♋ Cancer.
In 13 days on 16 May 2041 at 00:52 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
