Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 13 January 2080 at 21:40.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2080 after 17 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 27 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.
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 apogee on this date at 22:45, this is 13 days after last perigee on 6 January 2080 at 19:49 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 4 February 2080 at 07:30 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 406 533 km (252 608 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2080. It is 1 125 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 176 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
6 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 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 January 2080 at 00:20 in ♈ Aries.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 15:20 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-28.251°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2080. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠28.345° in its northern standstill point on 2 February 2080 at 14:34 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 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.
