Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 4 May 2080 at 00:10.

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 in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1778"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1901".

Flower Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2080 after 26 days on 2 June 2080 at 13:45.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 12 May 2080 at 01:11
  • New Moon in Taurus ♉ on 19 May 2080 at 10:56
  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 26 May 2080 at 02:03
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 2 June 2080 at 13:45

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 993 / 1946

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 993 of Meeus index or 1946 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 993 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 57 minutes. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 994 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠298.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠298.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠323.1°. 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 before apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 24 April 2080 at 09:33 in ♋ Cancer. 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 9 May 2080 at 21:01 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 403 237 km

Moon is 403 237 km (250 560 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 644 km (251 434 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 1 May 2080 at 13:38 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 16 May 2080 at 00:50 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon in southern standstill

At 20:36 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-28.498°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠28.443° in its northern standstill point on 21 May 2080 at 16:35 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 19 May 2080 at 10:56 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
