Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 13 July 2041 at 19:01.
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 ∠17° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2041 after 27 days on 12 August 2041 at 02:04.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 513 of Meeus index or 1466 from Brown series.
Length of current 513 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 45 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 514 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠123.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠152.5°. 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 09:14, this is 12 days after last apogee on 3 July 2041 at 06:46 in ♍ Virgo. 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 30 July 2041 at 20:07 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 360 651 km (224 098 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 857 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 705 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 days after its descending node on 8 July 2041 at 20:45 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 July 2041 at 10:19 in ♉ Taurus.
21 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 12 July 2041 at 18:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.311°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.332° in the next northern standstill on 25 July 2041 at 16:19 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 28 July 2041 at 01:02 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
