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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 3 July 2080 at 22:07 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 July 2080 at 05:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 401 879 km

Moon is 401 879 km (249 716 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 232 km (221 974 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 July 2080 at 07:56 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 1 July 2080 at 08:40 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.365°. Next 8 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 10 days

After 10 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.
