Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 18 August 2041 at 17:43.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1827" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2041 after 19 days on 10 September 2041 at 09:24.
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.
The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 514 of Meeus index or 1467 from Brown series.
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°).
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.
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°.
8 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 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 27 August 2041 at 02:03 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 392 266 km (243 743 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 632 km (252 669 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 17 August 2041 at 11:36 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 1 September 2041 at 00:51 in ♏ Scorpio.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 21:17 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠27.495°. Over the next 15 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-27.620° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 5 September 2041 at 12:54.
In 5 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.
