Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 13 March 2080 at 11:12.
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 about ∠18° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2080 after 19 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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 06:06, this is 11 days after last perigee on 3 March 2080 at 11:22 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 30 March 2080 at 10:45 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 404 751 km (251 501 mi) away from Earth. It is 657 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 958 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
7 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 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 March 2080 at 08:10 in ♈ Aries.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 14 March 2080 at 04:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.568°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.594° in the next northern standstill on 28 March 2080 at 03:44 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 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.
