Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 6 June 2041 at 21:40.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1865" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2041 after 1 day on 14 June 2041 at 10:59.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 512 of Meeus index or 1465 from Brown series.
Length of current 512 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 513 length.
Length of current synodic month is 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 46 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠88.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠123.4°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 5 June 2041 at 13:34 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 June 2041 at 11:48 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 384 238 km (238 754 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 482 km (227 100 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 11 June 2041 at 14:42 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 June 2041 at 08:57 in ♉ Taurus.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 1 June 2041 at 03:42 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.334°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.308° in the next southern standstill on 15 June 2041 at 09:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 14 June 2041 at 10:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
