Buck Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2080 after 13 days on 2 July 2080 at 04:09.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 24 June 2080 at 09:12
  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 2 July 2080 at 04:09
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 10 July 2080 at 06:45

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 995 / 1948

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 995 of Meeus index or 1948 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 995 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2080. It is 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 996 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠341.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠341.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠357°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 21:12, this is 12 days after last apogee on 6 June 2080 at 12:37 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 3 July 2080 at 22:07 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 359 167 km

This perigee Moon is 359 167 km (223 176 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 341 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 189 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

6 days after its ascending node on 12 June 2080 at 05:55 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 June 2080 at 18:02 in ♎ Libra.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon in northern standstill

At 01:30 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.379°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.365° in its southern standstill point on 1 July 2080 at 08:40 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 2 July 2080 at 04:09 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
