Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 5 February 2080 at 12:21.

Moonrise and moonset

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 entering ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1939"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1939" and ∠1946".

Snow Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2080 after 28 days on 5 March 2080 at 23:29.

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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 4 February 2080 at 07:30 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 16 February 2080 at 11:11 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 369 624 km

Moon is 369 624 km (229 674 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 750 km (252 121 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 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 3 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

9 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

3 days after previous North standstill on 2 February 2080 at 14:34 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.345°. Next 9 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 14 days

After 14 days on 20 February 2080 at 20:11 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
