Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 17 September 2041 at 05:33.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Synodic month length 29.68 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 25 minutes. It is 24 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 22 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠176.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠176.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠200.1°.

Moon before perigee

12 days after point of perigee on 10 September 2041 at 02:12 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 23 September 2041 at 04:59 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 025 km

The Moon is 405 025 km (251 671 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 361 km (252 501 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 13 September 2041 at 16:25 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 28 September 2041 at 03:42 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 18 September 2041 at 03:03 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.700°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.789° at the point of next southern standstill on 2 October 2041 at 19:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 25 September 2041 at 08:41 in ♎ Libra 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.
