Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 12 August 2041 at 02:04.

Moonrise and moonset

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 in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1919"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1919" and ∠1896".

Sturgeon Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2041 after 23 days on 10 September 2041 at 09:24.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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.

Lunation 514 / 1467

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 12 August 2041 at 16:02 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 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 27 August 2041 at 02:03 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 373 613 km

The Moon is 373 613 km (232 152 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 632 km (252 669 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 11:36 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 1 September 2041 at 00:51 in ♏ Scorpio.

New draconic month

At 11:36 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 9 August 2041 at 04:03 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.426°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.495° at the point of next northern standstill on 21 August 2041 at 21:17 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 26 August 2041 at 16:16 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
