Quarter* ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 5 March 2080 at 23:29.
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 ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1786" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2080 after 22 days on 4 April 2080 at 11:24.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 991 of Meeus index or 1944 from Brown series.
Length of current 991 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 55 minutes. It is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than next lunation 992 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠228.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠264.5°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 3 March 2080 at 11:22 in ♌ Leo. 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 15 March 2080 at 06:06 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 401 350 km (249 387 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 751 km (251 501 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 7 March 2080 at 20:50 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 March 2080 at 08:10 in ♈ Aries.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 29 February 2080 at 22:04 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.509°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.568° in the next southern standstill on 14 March 2080 at 04:33 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 9 days on 21 March 2080 at 12:06 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
