Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 28 July 2041 at 01:02.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1770"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1890".

Sturgeon Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2041 after 13 days on 12 August 2041 at 02:04.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 514 / 1467

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 514 of Meeus index or 1467 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.63 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 14 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°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 33 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠152.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠152.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠176.4°.

Moon before perigee

14 days after point of perigee on 15 July 2041 at 09:14 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 30 July 2041 at 20:07 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 967 km

The Moon is 404 967 km (251 635 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 212 km (252 408 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 21 July 2041 at 10:19 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 4 August 2041 at 23:33 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 25 July 2041 at 16:19 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.332°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.426° at the point of next southern standstill on 9 August 2041 at 04:03 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 12 August 2041 at 02:04 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
