Moon phase on 12 August 2041 Monday is Full Moon, 15 days old Moon is in Aquarius.Share this page: twitter facebook linkedin
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1894".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2041.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 514 of Meeus index or 1467 from Brown series.
Length of current 514 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 14 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 515 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠152.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠176.4°. 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 16:02, this is 12 days after last apogee on 30 July 2041 at 20:07 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 August 2041 at 02:03 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 357 495 km (222 137 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 013 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 861 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its descending node on 4 August 2041 at 23:33 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 August 2041 at 11:36 in ♉ Taurus.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 9 August 2041 at 04:03 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.426°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.495° in the next northern standstill on 21 August 2041 at 21:17 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
