Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 8 August 2080 at 17:21.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Sturgeon Moon after 15 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2080 after 15 days on 30 August 2080 at 10:41.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 996 / 1949

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 15:04, this is 14 days after last apogee on 31 July 2080 at 00:49 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 August 2080 at 06:54 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 358 080 km

This perigee Moon is 358 080 km (222 501 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 428 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 276 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 5 August 2080 at 09:26 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 August 2080 at 02:15 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 11 August 2080 at 20:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.549°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.609° in the next southern standstill on 24 August 2080 at 19:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 15 August 2080 at 08:13 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
