Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 14 June 2041 at 10:59.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2041 after 26 days on 13 July 2041 at 19:01.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 11:48, this is 11 days after last apogee on 5 June 2041 at 13:34 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 3 July 2041 at 06:46 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 365 482 km (227 100 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 974 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 874 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days 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 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 June 2041 at 08:57 in ♉ Taurus.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 15 June 2041 at 09:11 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.308°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.286° in the next northern standstill on 28 June 2041 at 10:46 in ♋ Cancer.
After 10 days on 28 June 2041 at 11:17 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
