Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 10 September 2041 at 09:24.
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 is passing first ∠4° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1931" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2041 after 26 days on 9 October 2041 at 18:03.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 515 of Meeus index or 1468 from Brown series.
Length of current 515 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 25 minutes. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 10 September 2041 at 02:12 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 September 2041 at 04:59 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 371 174 km (230 637 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 361 km (252 501 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 16:25 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 28 September 2041 at 03:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 16:25 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
7 days after previous South standstill on 5 September 2041 at 12:54 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.620°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.700° in the next northern standstill on 18 September 2041 at 03:03 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 25 September 2041 at 08:41 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
