Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2041 after 14 days on 10 September 2041 at 09:24.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 16:16 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 515 of Meeus index or 1468 from Brown series.
29 days, 16 hours and 25 minutes is the length of new lunation 515. It is 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 516 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠200.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
13 days after point of perigee on 12 August 2041 at 16:02 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 August 2041 at 02:03 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 405 369 km (251 885 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 632 km (252 669 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 17 August 2041 at 11:36 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 September 2041 at 00:51 in ♏ Scorpio.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 21 August 2041 at 21:17 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.495°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.620° in the next southern standstill on 5 September 2041 at 12:54 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
