Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 23 July 2080 at 18:40.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1773"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1890".

Buck Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2080 after 2 days on 31 July 2080 at 19:13.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 996 / 1949

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 996 of Meeus index or 1949 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.29 days

Length of current 996 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 997 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠357°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠357°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠12°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before apogee

12 days after point of perigee on 17 July 2080 at 05:42 in ♋ Cancer. 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 31 July 2080 at 00:49 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 214 km

Moon is 404 214 km (251 167 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 354 km (252 497 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 21 July 2080 at 20:09 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 August 2080 at 09:26 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

20 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

1 day after previous South standstill on 28 July 2080 at 13:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.461°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.549° in the next northern standstill on 11 August 2080 at 20:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 31 July 2080 at 19:13 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
