Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 28 October 2080 at 16:13.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2080 after 27 days on 27 November 2080 at 05:14.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 999 / 1952

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 999 of Meeus index or 1952 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.54 days

Length of current 999 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 53 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 1000 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠51.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠51.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠82.5°. 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°).

Moon before perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 21 October 2080 at 15:25 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 November 2080 at 09:49 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 376 652 km

Moon is 376 652 km (234 041 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 160 km (230 007 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after its ascending node on 26 October 2080 at 03:27 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 November 2080 at 04:19 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 18 October 2080 at 10:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.649°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.580° in the next northern standstill on 1 November 2080 at 15:18 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 11 November 2080 at 15:37 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
