Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 1 November 2041 at 12:05.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2041 after 2 days on 8 November 2041 at 04:43.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 517 of Meeus index or 1470 from Brown series.
Length of current 517 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 6 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 518 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 22 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 41 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠229.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠265.9°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 15:42, this is 15 days after last apogee on 20 October 2041 at 16:08 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 17 November 2041 at 10:08 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 364 299 km (226 365 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 791 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 057 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after its descending node on 25 October 2041 at 09:31 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 November 2041 at 12:05 in ♉ Taurus.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 30 October 2041 at 01:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.842°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.827° in the next northern standstill on 11 November 2041 at 19:44 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 8 November 2041 at 04:43 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
