Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 23 November 2041 at 17:36.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1906" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2041 after 11 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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 518 of Meeus index or 1471 from Brown series.
Length of current 518 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than next lunation 519 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠265.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠300.9°. 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°).
9 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 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 December 2041 at 16:20 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 376 139 km (233 722 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 538 km (229 620 mi).
4 days 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 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 December 2041 at 20:02 in ♈ Aries.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 07:01 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-27.785°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠27.747° in its northern standstill point on 9 December 2041 at 04:59 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 7 December 2041 at 17:42 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
