Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 13 January 2080 at 21:40.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1783"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1783" and ∠1950".

Snow Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2080 after 19 days on 5 February 2080 at 12:21.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 989 / 1942

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 989 of Meeus index or 1942 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.81 days

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.

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠174.6°

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 before apogee

10 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 January 2080 at 22:45 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 401 920 km

Moon is 401 920 km (249 742 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 533 km (252 608 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 13 January 2080 at 09:00 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 January 2080 at 00:20 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 6 January 2080 at 04:42 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.224°. Next 2 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.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 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.
