Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1901".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2080.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 27 August 2080 at 06:54 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 September 2080 at 22:03 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 401 721 km (249 618 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 563 km (224 665 mi).
12 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 September 2080 at 13:10 in ♓ Pisces.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 24 August 2080 at 19:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.609°. Next 8 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.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
