Quarter ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 4 April 2080 at 11:24.
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 first ∠2° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2080 after 23 days on 4 May 2080 at 00:10.
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.
The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 992 of Meeus index or 1945 from Brown series.
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.
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.
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°).
11 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 April 2080 at 02:12 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 404 316 km (251 230 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 275 km (251 205 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 4 April 2080 at 06:19 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 April 2080 at 16:44 in ♈ Aries.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 12:43 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-28.592°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠28.551° in its northern standstill point on 24 April 2080 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer.
After 9 days on 20 April 2080 at 01:00 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
