Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 8 November 2041 at 04:43.
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 about ∠5° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1892" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2041 after 28 days on 7 December 2041 at 17:42.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 5 November 2041 at 15:42 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 November 2041 at 10:08 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 378 927 km (235 454 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 651 km (251 438 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 7 November 2041 at 12:05 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 November 2041 at 17:04 in ♎ Libra.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 30 October 2041 at 01:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.842°. Next 2 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 14 days on 23 November 2041 at 17:36 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
