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 ♑ Capricorn

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2080 after 28 days on 31 July 2080 at 19:13.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 10 July 2080 at 06:45
  • New Moon in Cancer ♋ on 17 July 2080 at 01:21
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 23 July 2080 at 18:40

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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 22:07, this is 15 days after last perigee on 18 June 2080 at 21:12 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 17 July 2080 at 05:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 236 km

This apogee Moon is 406 236 km (252 423 mi) away from Earth. It is 828 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 473 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 24 June 2080 at 18:02 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 July 2080 at 07:56 in ♈ Aries.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 1 July 2080 at 08:40 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.365°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.422° in the next northern standstill on 15 July 2080 at 11:18 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 17 July 2080 at 01:21 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
