Moon* ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1951".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2080.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 989 of Meeus index or 1942 from Brown series.
Length of current 989 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 24 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2080. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 990 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 23 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠174.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠199.5°. 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 19:49, this is 13 days after last apogee on 23 December 2079 at 21:45 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 January 2080 at 22:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 356 505 km (221 522 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2080. It is 6 003 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 80 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after its ascending node on 31 December 2079 at 23:44 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 January 2080 at 09:00 in ♎ Libra.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 04:42 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.224°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2080. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.251° in its southern standstill point on 19 January 2080 at 15:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
