Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 20 September 2080 at 22:48.
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 about ∠11° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2080 after 4 days on 29 September 2080 at 01:54.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 998 of Meeus index or 1951 from Brown series.
Length of current 998 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 999 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 25 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 44 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠29.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠51.5°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 23 September 2080 at 20:47 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 15 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 October 2080 at 17:45 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 405 455 km (251 938 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 15 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 709 km (227 862 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 14 September 2080 at 11:50 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 September 2080 at 19:44 in ♓ Pisces.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 21 September 2080 at 02:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.695°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.682° in the next northern standstill on 5 October 2080 at 09:53 in ♋ Cancer.
After 4 days on 29 September 2080 at 01:54 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
