Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 29 January 2080 at 21:37.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♌ Leo

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1968"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1946".

Snow Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2080 after 1 day on 5 February 2080 at 12:21.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 990 / 1943

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 990 of Meeus index or 1943 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.76 days

Length of current 990 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 16 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2080. It is 2 hours and 21 minutes longer than next lunation 991 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 32 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 31 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠199.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠199.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠228.8°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:30, this is 15 days after last apogee on 19 January 2080 at 22:45 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 16 February 2080 at 11:11 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 359 104 km

This perigee Moon is 359 104 km (223 137 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 404 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 252 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 28 January 2080 at 00:20 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 February 2080 at 12:47 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 2 February 2080 at 14:34 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.345°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.419° in the next southern standstill on 15 February 2080 at 21:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 5 February 2080 at 12:21 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
