Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 7 January 2080 at 01:45.
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 ∠8° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1926" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2080 after 26 days on 5 February 2080 at 12:21.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 6 January 2080 at 19:49 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 January 2080 at 22:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 372 165 km (231 253 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 533 km (252 608 mi).
9 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 January 2080 at 09:00 in ♎ Libra.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 6 January 2080 at 04:42 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.224°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.251° in the next southern standstill on 19 January 2080 at 15:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 11 days on 22 January 2080 at 01:55 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
