Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 28 March 2080 at 14:32.

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 in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1923"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1923" and ∠1919".

Pink Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2080 after 1 day on 4 April 2080 at 11:24.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 992 / 1945

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 992 of Meeus index or 1945 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.54 days

Length of current 992 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. It is 2 hours and 57 minutes longer than next lunation 993 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠264.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠264.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠298.1°. 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

3 days after point of perigee on 30 March 2080 at 10:45 in ♌ Leo. 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 12 April 2080 at 02:12 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 372 825 km

Moon is 372 825 km (231 663 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 275 km (251 205 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 22 March 2080 at 08:10 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 April 2080 at 06:19 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

11 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

5 days after previous North standstill on 28 March 2080 at 03:44 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.594°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.592° in the next southern standstill on 10 April 2080 at 12:43 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 4 April 2080 at 11:24 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
