Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1816" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2041 after 15 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 28 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.
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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 17 November 2041 at 10:08 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 December 2041 at 16:20 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 394 599 km (245 192 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 538 km (229 620 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 21 November 2041 at 17:04 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 December 2041 at 20:02 in ♈ Aries.

10 days after previous North standstill on 11 November 2041 at 19:44 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.827°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.785° in the next southern standstill on 26 November 2041 at 07:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day 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.
