Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 15 November 2041 at 16:06.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1799" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2041 after 16 days on 7 December 2041 at 17:42.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 517 of Meeus index or 1470 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 6 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer 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°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 22 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 41 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠229.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠265.9°.
4 days after point of apogee on 17 November 2041 at 10:08 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 December 2041 at 16:20 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 398 409 km (247 560 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 538 km (229 620 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♎ Libra at 17:04 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 4 December 2041 at 20:02 in ♈ Aries.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 11 November 2041 at 19:44 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.827°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.785° at the point of next southern standstill on 26 November 2041 at 07:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 days on 23 November 2041 at 17:36 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
