Moon ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 8 May 2041 at 03:54.
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 passing about ∠5° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1833" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2041 after 1 day on 16 May 2041 at 00:52.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 apogee on 8 May 2041 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 22 May 2041 at 01:18 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 391 045 km (242 984 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 566 km (229 638 mi).
13 days after ascending node on 30 April 2041 at 20:05 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 May 2041 at 06:22 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 4 May 2041 at 19:15 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.379°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.362° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 May 2041 at 01:39 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day 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.
