Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 22 August 2080 at 07:07.
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 is passing first ∠3° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2080 after 2 days on 30 August 2080 at 10:41.
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.
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 997 of Meeus index or 1950 from Brown series.
Length of current 997 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 11 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 998 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠12°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠29.1°. 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 is reaching point of apogee on this date at 06:54, this is 12 days after last perigee on 14 August 2080 at 15:04 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 11 September 2080 at 22:03 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 405 834 km (252 174 mi) away from Earth. It is 426 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 875 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
9 days after its descending node on 18 August 2080 at 02:15 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 1 September 2080 at 13:10 in ♓ Pisces.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 24 August 2080 at 19:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.609°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.667° in the next northern standstill on 8 September 2080 at 04:04 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 30 August 2080 at 10:41 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
